Herdade do Rocim Rose, 2020
Style/ Colour Rose
Grape Varieties Touriga Nacional
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 Southern Portugal may not be the first place you'd think to look for dry rosé but the French aren't the only ones that have figured this pink-wine thing out! Herdade do Rocim's vineyards are on a steep escarpment which tempers the regions considerable heat and lends itself to a more mineral, terroir-driven wine.
The grapes were meticulously triaged on a vibrating sorting table before being fully destemmed and lightly crushed. Fermentation tool place at a controlled temperature of 15ºC for 17 days.
Tasting notes Pale salmon in colour. Raspberry and strawberry notes with some floral notes. Fresh, bone dry and mineral.
Food pairing Soft cheeses such as Portuguese Requeijão, salads or charcuterie.
Serving recommendations Serve cold 7-9ºC.
