For two years, Susana Esteban searched throughout the Alentejo region for optimal vineyards to make her wines. It was only in 2011 that she finally found two plots in Portalegre, an area much cooler than the rest of the Alentejo territory. One vineyard is a traditional blend of low-yielding traditional grape varieties, which brings uncommon freshness and complexity, while the other vineyard is 100% Alicante Bouschet, contributing power and structure. The combination of these two plots gave birth to a unique and extraordinary wine.
The Procura Tinto 2017 showcases notes of ripe and intense fruit, without any overripeness, accompanied by tobacco and a mineral undertone. There is also a subtle vegetal hint that adds uncommon complexity and tension. Vibrant and powerful, austere yet delicate, it surprises with lively yet serene tannins, ending with freshness and vigor.
