Herdade do Rocim 'Olho do Mocho' Reserva White, 2017
Style/ Colour White
Grape Varieties Antão Vaz
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 Fermented in new French oak barrels for 21 days. After fermentation the wine undergoes daily battonage for five months.
Tasting notes Fresh green fruit and lemon peel, with a pungent minerality with hints of flint. Excellent crisp acidity and structure.
Food pairing Perfect pairing for Asian food, and also vegetarian dishes with ingredients like; yellow squash, peas, aubergine, white mushrooms and truffles.
Serving recommendations Serve cold 7-9ºC.
