Grape Varieties 40% Moreto, 30% Tinta Grossa and 30% 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 Organic grapes, naturally vinified in clay pots ‘Talha’ and with no temperature control. Fermentation took place using indigenous yeasts and with no addition or correction of must. Two months of skin contact inside the amphora. Come under Nieports Nat Cool brand.
Tasting notes Very light ruby colour. Fragrant medicinal dark red fruits and earthy, vegetal notes. Light in body but not thin in flavour. Very Juicy and very fresh.
Food pairing Charcuterie, roast squash, wild mushrooms
Serving recommendations Should be served slightly chilled 12-14ºC.
