Producer Note
Herdade do Rocim is an estate located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in the Lower
Alentejo. It comprises 120 hectares, 70 of which are made up of vineyards and 10
hectares of olive trees. Since its inception in 2000, Herdade do Rocim has invested
heavily in the vineyards, replanting vines and introducing new varieties. They are
pioneers in ‘amphora wines’, following the ancient traditions of vinification in pots
known as ‘Tahla’. The vineyard is cultivated manually and minimal intervention is
used in the cellar, to produce fresh, elegant and mineral wines. In 2018, Herdade do
Rocim was awarded Best Wine Producer by Revista de Vinhos.


Vineyard
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 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.


Winemaking
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.
