Herdade do Rocim
Climate: Typically mediterranean and set in the sub-region of Vidigueira, where the climatic conditions are the most temperate of Alentejo and provide an excellent microclimate for the production of quality wines. Soil: Poor land, predominantly of granite and schist. Great pedological potential for the cultivation of vines and for obtaining quality wines. Wine Varieties: The varieties Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez are trellised in a vertical shoot position and
the Touriga Nacional in LYS, a multi-spaced system allowing for greater canopy shade. The rows have an east/west orientation with the grape varieties at different exposures: Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez (west) and Touriga Nacional (east). Vinification: Manual harvest into 12 kg boxes. In the winery, the grapes underwent careful selection on a vibrating sorting table before destemming with a slight crushing of the berries. After 48 hours of pre-fermentation cold maceration, fermentation took place in french oak vats and in open fermenter lagares at a controlled temperature of around 24ºC for a period of 11 days. The wine aged in french oak barrels, for a period of 10 months. After bottling, the wine aged in bottle for six months.
