ELABORATION
Procura Na Ânfora Blanco 2018
is made with several autochthonous varieties from 85-year-old vineyards planted in Serra de São Mamede, at 700 metres of altitude. The grapes were harvested by hand in 20 kg boxes and selected at the winery entrance. The amphorae or talha are those ones that were traditionally used to make wine in Alentejo. This wine of Susana Esteban has also been made and aged for 6 months in red clay amphoras, but it was vinified after being pressed and decanted with temperature control. It was bottled in March 2019 and only 4,815 bottles have been made.

TASTING NOTES (Published in El Club January 2020)
Procura Na Ânfora Blanco 2018
has a nice very pale and bright golden colour. On the nose it is highly perfumed with exuberant notes of fresh white fruits such as apple, white flowers and marked citrus memories with lime peel and Mediterranean herbs such as fennel and a touch of anise. On the palate it has a fresh entry with an agile and fresh mid palate that intensifies the final aromas of lemon. Ideal to accompany starters, or with grilled fish, seafood rice and creamy cheeses. To enjoy now and for the next 5 years. Serve between 10 and 12ºC, in a Riesling glass from the Vinum de Riedel series (6416/15) or the Viognier / Chardonnay from the Veritas de Riedel series (449/05).

"Procura Na Ânfora Blanco 2018 comes from an extraordinary 85-year-old vineyard with a mixture of native varieties and is made in centenary amphorae, although using current technology to preserve the identity of the vineyard", explains the oenologist.
