    2021 ‘Mariana’ Red, Herdade do Rocim

    £1375

    This vibrant blend of native Portuguese grapes delivers exuberant aromas of red berries complimented by subtle spicy notes. Textured on the palate with silky tannins enveloping the fruit through to a long, delicious finish.

    Herdade do Rocim is associated with the Sustainable Program of the Alentejo Viticulture. This wine is made from organically grown grapes; 70% of the vineyard is certified and the remaining 30% is in conversion.

The fault significantly influences the climate, trapping the cool, humid Atlantic winds, so despite its southern location, it is one of the most temperate sub-regions in the Alentejo. These cooling and humid influences descend at night, creating diurnal temperature differences which extend the ripening period; with the warm days concentrating the flavours in the grapes, while balancing natural acidity is retained during the cool nights. The soils are of granitic and schistous origin. The water level in the soil is rich and superficial, nourishing the vines during the warm summers.

  • ‘Alta No. 10’ Ten-Year-Old Tawny Port, Quinta da Pedra AltaFortified, Port, Port & Dessert Wine

    ‘Alta No. 10’ Ten-Year-Old Tawny Port, Quinta da Pedra Alta

    £2600

    Alta No.10 is an elegant, luscious, complex Tawny Port made in traditional granite lagars and aged in old casks.

    This is the first Ten-Year-Old produced on the estate and is a fitting tribute to the positive impact João has had on the estate since he started in 2009.

    As with all ports, blending is the key, and Pedra Alta uses a variety of aged parcels with different levels of sweetness and acidity, including a small proportion of some really old barrels (at least 40 years old). The aim is to deliver an elegant, complex Ten-Year-Old Tawny style where the sweetness takes a back seat, and the Pedra Alta acidity provides the focus.

    Serve slightly chilled as an aperitif and as a perfect accompaniment to chocolate desserts or strong cheese.

    Perfect to drink now, but will gain further complexity over the next 20+ years.
