Wine of the Week - Mariana Rose

It's the first 2016 Rosé Wine of the Week feature! Although the Mariana Rosé is perfect for all year around, pairing well with a variety of cuisines, there's something about the warming spring season that makes you reach for rosé! Made from Touriga Nacional and Aragonez, the Mariana is easygoing, vivaciously fruity, and very fresh; showing notes of bright red berries, elderflower, and melon.  

Fans of the Mariana wines might also notice a label change! We are excited to announce that Herdade do Rocim has introduced a new design for their Mariana label! Classic and elegant, this label encompasses the beauty of wines and the Alentejano appellation.  

Located in the Lower Alentejo region in the southern half of Portugal, between Vidigueira and Cuba, lies the estate of Herdade do Rocim. Catarina Vieira has been in charge of the development of the estate and she believes that Alentejo has the unique conditions required to produce world-class wines. Joining her as General Manager of the estate is Pedro Ribiero. He contributes to the winemaking decisions, as well as running the sales and business affairs of the estate. Since purchasing the estate, Caterina and Pedro have invested greatly in the land by completely regenerating the vineyards and building a new state of the art winery. They believe that Rocim has great potential for producing high quality wines with worldwide recognition and have created a project that gives value not only to Alentejo, but to Portugal as a whole.
