Herdade do Rocim 'Olho de Mocho' Reserva Red, 2018
Style/ Colour Red
Grape Varieties Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira
The producer The wines of Herdade do Rocim have become something of a fixture at Bar Douro since winemaking couple Catarina Vieira and Pedro Ribeiro presented a selection of wines from their huge, diverse range at an ‘in conversation’ wine dinner. The range has become increasingly refined, less reliant on extraction and oak, allowing the Vidigueira sub-region’s freshness to animate the wines. From mature bottles like Olho de Mocho Reserva to making wine in traditional talha (large amphorae) and innovative ‘clay barrels’ has revealed another side to this modern estate.
Wine Making Grapes are fully destemmed and lightly crushed. Fermentation takes place in concrete tanks, at a controlled temperature, for 11 days. Aged in 500 L french oak barrels for 16 months.
Tasting Notes Deep, concentrated ruby colour. Very rich dark fruit, with hints of tobacco, spices and mint. Structured with firm tannins and a long and persistent finish.
Food Pairing Ribeye steak, red meat
Serving Recommendations Serve at cellar temperature 16-18ºC.
