Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Tinto 2021

In Stock Pre order Out of stock
Luis Seabra made his name as winemaker for Niepoort, before leaving to set up his own project in 2013. Seabra’s idea was to make uncompromising wines: the sort he wanted to make, without thinking about what the market wants. He wanted to create authentic expressions of these regions.

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.
