Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado Douro Tinto 2018

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 Xisto Ilimitado Douro Tinto 2018

This is 12 days ferment in lagar, just trodden once. Gentle extraction here, with the grapes pushed down to keep the cap moist. Very fresh and finely grained with good acidity. This has real precision with freshness and purity. Red cherry and raspberry fruit showing great focus. 94/100 (JG)

A field blend of six varieties planted across three subzones, Illimitado is a soil survey of the schist-driven terroir in the Douro. This year the blend is led by Touriga Franca, and includes Tinta Roriz, Tinta Marcela, and Malvasia Preta in the mix, all sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards planted from 1960-1980, and at 400-600m. Entirely whole cluster, this was fermented 60/40 stainless vat and granite lagares with foot trodding. 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.
