"The 2015 Branco Procura is a field blend from very old (80 years or so) Portalegre vines at 700 meters altitude. It was aged in used (seven year) French oak for eight months and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Showing a bit more depth and precision than the Aventura this issue, it also has a darker feel, probably due to the wood, with more complexity. That said, the wood doesn't show at all as such. The acidity obliterates it. The long finish is mouthwatering, with hints of tartness underneath. This is lighter-styled but very fine. With the acidity, this should age pretty well. Susana told me that she expects this to age ten years or more. Of course, there is very little track record, so let's be a bit conservative. In its lighter styled, elegant way, this is impressive and persistent. It will be interesting to see if this acquires complexity and truly develops as it ages."
"Shows an intense citric character together with dry-straw aromas. Mineral and very elegant, it shows complex flavors and a strong mineral character with great acidity. Procura white wine has an elegant finish with firm acidity and great concentration. " ~ Winery notes
really interesting! - Different, and very nice. Try this if you like to walk the path untrod. We're buying more...
