2015 Herdade do Rocim Touriga Nacional Alentejano

SKU #1283386

Herdade do Rocim is located in the lower Alentejo region (southern Portugal). This property got its start in 2000 focusing primarily on local grapes like Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet. They also work with several international grapes like Cabernet and Syrah, which is becoming more common in the Alentejo region. Catarina Viera and her team strive to create wines that are elegant, complex and strong. She is inspired by her love and respect for her grandparents, her father and her family, her connection with nature, and a true and unwavering passion for wine. Catarina continues to push the limits in what was believed to be possible in Alentejo. The 2015 Herdade de Rocim Touriga Nacional Alentejano shows everything the Viera family is working towards, coming together. An insane value, it’s made from the Touriga Nacional grape (often used to make Port). It has alluring aromas of blackberry kirsch, white pepper and licorice notes while the palate is dry with dark fruits and spice throughout. You can pair this delicious wine with any food you would pair with a Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon.
