Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado Douro Tinto 2020

  • Grape : Rufete, Touriga Franca, Malvasia Preta, Alicante Bouschet e Donzelinho Tinto.
  • Country Portugal
  • Region Douro
  • ABV 13.5 %
  • Producer Luis Seabra
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • Opening young and grippy, with plum, wild blackberry, sarsaparilla, worn leather, blueberry on a bed of wet slate. There’s a fine buzz that textures throughout to the lingering finish.

Luis Seabra may be a new name on the Portuguese wine scene, but he has already had a hand in crafting some of the Douro’s most exciting wines, working as Dirk Niepoort’s right-hand man from 2004 until leaving to set up his label in 2012. He is starting small, producing just 5,000 bottles of each of these three wines.

Winemaking is minimal intervention, and the style very much reflects the concentration of care lavished by this experienced winemaker on his tiny output: pure yet complex, more savory than fruity, with a density of texture and long, almost salty finishes marking the wines out as something very special. Luis Seabra is certainly a name to watch but has also hit the ground running with a stunning debut.
