  • Rich in fruit with exuberant tropical notes this shows lovely freshness and minerality. Well textured on the palate with vibrant balancing acidity, through to a lively finish.

Made following a philosophy of minimal intervention, the grapes were cold macerated to extract aromatics and flavour. Fermentation took place in small stainless steel vats at 16°C with natural yeasts. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks for five months to retain the purity of fruit and to showcase the Vidigueira terroir.

A richly flavoured and aromatic wine with exuberant tropical and herbal notes. Fresh, mineral, and textured with vibrant balancing acidity, through to a lively, zesty finish.

Herdade do Rocim is associated with the Sustainable Program of the Alentejo Viticulture. This wine is made from organically grown grapes; 70% of the vineyard is certified and the remaining 30% is in conversion. The estate is situated on the Vidigueira fault, a 30 mile long east-west facing escarpment which rises to 420 metres. The fault significantly influences the climate, trapping the cool, humid Atlantic winds, so despite its southern location it is one of the most temperate sub regions in the Alentejo. These cooling and humid influences descend at night, creating diurnal temperature differences of 15°C which extend the ripening period; with the warm days concentrating the flavours in the grapes, while balancing natural acidity is retained during the cool nights. The soils are of granitic and schistous origin. The water level in the soil is rich and superficial, nourishing the vines during the warm summers. All grapes are manually harvested.
