Herdade do Rocim "Mariana" Tinto '17

Alentejo

Herdade do Rocim "Mariana" Tinto '17

Herdade do Rocim is located in the southern part of Alentejo, surrounded by vineyards and vast forests.  Rocim seems to follow a classic and respectful way about viticultural life, as is a common outlook in Portugal, which involves a deeply terroir-focused perspective that guides the hand of the winemaker in respect to the land, Rocim being a highly sustainable winery, includes being certified organic as a highlight.   In the southernmost growing region of Alentejo, where it should be vastly warmer, it actually sees a more moderate climate, creating fresh and mineral-driven wines, and the vines fall on slopes of each side of its hilly terrain, aiding in angling away from direct sunlight at times.  

The "Mariana" Tinto is a blend of various Portuguese varietals including Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira varieties.  Approachable, fresh and fun, packed with ripe, dark fruit.  The wine is rich, but its tannins are well integrated creating a moderate structure that is well integrated and highly approachable.
