Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Douro Tinto  2021

  • Grape Rufete, Touriga Franca, Tinta Carvalha, Alicante Bouchet, Donzelinho Tinto
  • Country Portugal
  • Region Covas
  • ABV 12 %
  • Producer Luis Seabra
  • Case size 6/ 75cl
  • 11 months on lees, and 22 months total in older French oak. Big and structural, yet so well knit, with knotty purple and blue fruit, thorns, worn leather, salts, and dried florals on the savory, long frame. Tannins are savory and firm, though very well integrated even in youth. Much time to go ahead.
  • Analytical data


    0.9 g/l residual sugar
    5.4 g/l acidity
    3.53 pH

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 own 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.
