O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2018
Violet and opaque wine. Its aroma is still closed, but with airing it reveals notes of ripe berries, leather, resin, graphite and indicating that we will have wine for many years to come. In the mouth, it is a balanced wine, with totally untamed tannins, velvety texture and full bodied. Finishes with very good length.
Vinification after passing through the cold room, the grapes were carefully selected on a vibrating belt, followed by a complete de-stemming and a very slight crushing of the berries. Fermentation of the grape varieties took place separately in a French oak vat under a press at controlled temperatures for a period of 11 days. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. Limited to existing stock. If the wine you purchased is out of stock, we will contact you for you. Wine promotions cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons.
Herdade do Rocim
Herdade do Rocim is a property located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in Baixo Alentejo, with about 120 hectares, including 70 hectares of vineyards and 10 hectares of olive groves. Acquired in 2000 by Movicortes, S.A., in the following years there was restructuring and qualification work, consummated with the planting of most of the vineyard that today constitutes the Herdade do Rocim. This process of implantation was made according to specific criteria that allow the production of high quality grapes. The winery is a structuring element of the Herdade do Rocim project, which combines wine production with the aesthetic quality of its architecture and works as a promotional element for the requalification of the region. At Herdade do Rocim all efforts go in the direction of doing well, always improving and with a constant concern for the quality of the wine.
