O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2018
Clear straw yellow wine with aromas of tropical notes, mango, papaya, floral nuances, light toast (without overlapping this complex bouquet). In the mouth, it has a very fine taste, wine in which the wood is in balance with the wine, soft smoky notes, silky texture, very light, volume well achieved in a very subtle wine. Finishes with medium length, enough for delicate dishes.
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.Winemaking: Manual harvest in 12 kg boxes during the early hours of August. After a period of 12 hours of cold skin maceration, the wine fermented in French oak barrels for a period of 21 days at a controlled temperature. At the end of the fermentation the wine was subjected to a daily battonage for five months. Aging of 4 months in the bottle.
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.
