Deep ruby and violet colour. Fresh and mineral. Floral notes typical from the grape variety and spicy notes from the barrel aging. Soft and silky tannins. A structure that allows a good bottle aging.

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 Touriga Nacional variety is planted in a plot exposed to the east, following a multi-spaced
trellised system, LYS. The rows have an east/west orientation. Vinification: Manual harvest into 12 kg boxes. At the winery, the grapes were once again
sensible triaged on a vibrating sorting table, fully destemmed and lightly crushed. After a 48 hour period of pre-fermentative cold maceration, the fermentation has occurred in french oak barrels. Limited to existing stock. If the wine you have purchased runs out of stock, we will contact you to suggest a different wine, or to return the amount paid. Wine promotions cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons.

Susana Esteban

Susana Esteban was born at Tui, northern Spain. She has a degree at Chemestry by Santiago de Compostela University and a master degree at Enology by La Rioja University. She started working as a winemaker at Quinta do Côtto, Douro, in 1999. In 2002 she moved to Quinta do Crasto, also in the Douro valley, where she worked as winemaker until 2007. Since 2007 she has worked as a consultant for several Alentejo wineries including Tiago Cabaço wines, Herdade do Barrocal, Monte dos Cabaços and Monte da Raposinha. Throughout her career she managed to accumulate a fair share of awards. In 2012 she managed to receive the award of “Best winemaker of the Year” by Revista dos Vinhos, being the only female winemaker to receive so far such an award. At the end of 2009 Susana Esteban decided to establish herself as a wine producer starting her personnel project. She decided to make wines full of character in a slightly different style of the Alentejo traditional way.
