Xisto Ilimitado, Tinto, Luis Seabra, Douro, Portugal 2019

24.00

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 and makes field blends, rather than straight varietal wines, from the old vines that pepper the area. The Ilimitado range are made up of a field blend of 6 native varieties.

Winemaking is low intervention, with wild yeast ferments. 30% fermented in stone lagar with foot pigeage; other 70% in vat, 100% whole cluster. Maceration – lagar for 8 days; vat for 25 days. Racked to neutral barrel for 1 year followed by 5 months in tank. 100% natural yeast fermentation (no cultivated yeasts).These are wines of balance and finesse – definitively the “new” old Portugal
