Pale garnet red in colour. The bouquet brings freshness from the first moment, noticeable in the floral and elegant slope that is complemented by a luscious and balanced fruit. The palate is melodic and polished, fruity and smooth, it finishes seductive and silky although contained by firm tannins and a refreshing acidity on the finish.

Susana Esteban decided to establish herself as a wine producer starting her personnel project. She decided to make wines full of character in a slightly different style of the Alentejo traditional way. For two years she looked around (Procura) all of the Alentejo for the perfect vineyards to set her wines. She had to wait until 2011 to finally discover the two small vineyards that set the foundation for her two wines. In Portalegre, up in the mountains of S. Mamede, she found an old mixed planting of several different varieties, again with very small yields, that provide an amazing complexity and freshness. Susana Esteban has established a recent partnership with her good friend and also winemaker Sandra Tavares to make wines together.
