O Produtor, tasting note published in November 22nd 2023

Yellowish-green color. The nose presents floral and mineral notes. Pronounced acidity balanced by the earthy component elegantly, structured, and persistently reveals the time spent outdoors that gave it origin.

Santiago na Ânfora do Rocim

Santiago in Rocim’s Amphora is the result of a partnership between Herdade do Rocim and Quinta de Santiago, a producer from the Monção and Melgaço region.

It is a different interpretation of an Alvarinho from Monção and Melgaço, resulting from Quinta de Santiago’s knowledge of the grape variety and terroir, combined with Herdade do Rocim’s expertise in amphora winemaking.

An unprecedented experience that could only result in a unique and exceptional wine, the first Alvarinho ever made in an amphora!

Vinification: Manual harvest. 50% natural fermentation and aging in amphora, in contact with the skins. 50% natural fermentation in stainless steel and aging in amphora.

Allergens information

Contains sulphites.
