We guarantee you’ve never tasted a Shiraz quite like Rocksand—and you’re in for a serious treat.

Jaime Quendera is kind of a big deal on the Portuguese winemaking scene, having won over 1,000 gold medals in his 20-year career (not to mention, the prestigious “Best Red Wine in the World” trophy from Vinalies a few years back). He works his magic at Casa Ermelinda Freitas, which Mundus Vini judges named their 2021 “Best Producer from Portugal.” Little wonder he’s the guy behind some of our most popular Portuguese wines.

What makes his latest creation so special? The sandy soils of the Fernando Pó vineyard. Under these arid conditions, vines are forced to root deep into the ground in search of water and nutrients. This stresses the plant just enough so that fewer grapes burst forth. The grapes that do grow are so small and supremely concentrated, they yield a weighty, luscious wine that’s packed with deep, dark fruit flavor. Four months in French and American oak barrels adds just the right amount of baking spice character to complete the delicious picture.

Previous editions of Rocksand have won top gold medals and been praised by the tasters at UK newspaper, The Independent, who wrote: “Big, luscious and jammy dark fruit flavors...a long and satisfying finish.” Just wait until you try the equally delectable new release.
