The Baleia Vinhos Rochas is a blend made from 59% Tempranillo, 35% Syrah and 6% Pinot Noir. The name "Vinhos Rochas" is Portuguese for "Wine From Rocks", to represent the unique rocky agglomerated limestone soils this wine comes from. Because of this, the vines struggle and produce a small but concentrated yield. Grapes were harvested in the first week of March 2020 from vines planted in 2010, 9km from the ocean and marked the maiden vintage for this wine. To respect and preserve the unique character of the wine, it is fermented and aged for 14 months in large amphorae and large wooden founders. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Aromatic earthy notes of cherries, black berries and slight white pepper.

Palate: Full bodied with contrasting savoury flavours of leather, red cherries, black berries, white pepper and a beautiful earthy nose.

Finish: A harmonious berry and gentle sea spray.
