2019 Herdade do Rocim - Fresh from Amphora Nat'Cool Tinto @herdadedorocim · ℹ️ This wine is from the Alentejo region of Portugal. It is a blend of Moreto, Tinta Grossa, and Trincadeira. The grapes are organically farmed and planted on granite and schist soils. Grapes are hand-harvested and vinified in clay amphorae without temperature control. The fermentation is done only with indigenous yeasts with no additions or corrections of the must. Two months of skin contact inside the amphora before bottling. 👁 Pale ruby color· 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of fresh ripe raspberry, sour cherry, red currant, wet rock, and some dried flowers· 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, low soft tannins, medium- alcohol (12%), and medium- body. Good texture on the palate. A short length finish of ripe red fruit· 🔔 Fresh from Amphora is a straight forward and enjoyable natural wine. Don't overthink this wine, give it a slight chill and glug glug. Oh yeah, and this only comes in 1 Liter bottles 🤤 . People ask about ”summer” red wines, and here you go! This is a legit quaffable red wine with nothing added and made in amphora. I think of big red wines when Alentejo is mentioned, but I didn't realize that Portugal has a long tradition of making wine in amphora, called Tahla· 💰~$22· #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #amphora #gluglu #glugglug #naturalwine #glouglou #nattywine #alentejo
