10 of July of 2017
The July edition of the American magazine Wine Spectator ranks 91 points (0/100), the Branco Branco 2015 by the winemaker Susana Esteban. White Alentejano scored the highest score of all whites tasted in this edition and one of the best ever white Alentejo wines. Wine Spectator, one of the most prestigious and renowned wine publications, highlights this fresh Portalegre wine, notes of honey, peach and spices, as well as the details of floral and mango.
The Procura branco come from an 80-year old vine with a mixture of grape varieties, a unique and exceptional vineyard located in the Serra de São Mamede, in Portalegre. It was here that Susana Esteban found a traditional vineyard planted in a much cooler area than the rest of the Alentejo. A mixed vine that brings together a wide range of traditional varieties of very low production that adds an unusual freshness and complexity.
Mineral and very elegant, the Procura branco offers an enormous complexity of aromas showing itself to be elegant and complex, concentrated and with a firm acidity and taut end.
