Herdade do Rocim 'Amphora'

, 2019

Portugal

Alentejo 75cl

Since its inception in 2000, Herdade do Rocim has invested heavily in the vineyards, replanting vines and introducing new varieties. They are pioneers in ‘amphora wines’, following the ancient traditions of vinification in pots known as ‘Tahla’.
A blend of 40% Antao Vaz, 20% Perrum, 20% Rabo de Ovelha and 20% Manteudo. Wild yeast fermentation.
This naturally vinified wine is golden in colour and has a complex bouquet of smoky, spicy and herbal aromas, honied and creamy on the palate through to a fresh, saline finish. It's interesting if not hugely drinkable, it needs food.
