Luis Seabra Indie Xisto Tinto Douro 2019

$89.00

From vines at least 70 years of age. A single vineyard from Alijo at the very high altitude of 580 metres with blue schist soil. Variteals are Tinta Barroca, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Rufete, Malvasia Preta, Donzelinho Tinto, Touriga Brasileira and Touriga Femea. Foot trodden, naturally fermented with100% whole cluster, with only a 10 day maceration. After tasting the wine you will understand why. Aged for 18 months in used 225litre French oak barriques.

Bright notes of black fruits, violet, lavender, geraniums and pink peppercorns. The least textured of the wines, but this is not to imply weakness. Deep, brooding and mineral. Silky palate, round shape and smooth almost lulls you into a sense of sweetness. Until the rifling tannins kick in with a squeeze that is all tobacco. One of my favourite Seabra wines ever. Complete wine. Waters Wine Co

 

Deep, bright red-purple colour, the bouquet fresh and bold with black-cherry and blackberry aromas, a suggestion of cassis, vanilla and coffee grounds too, the palate full-bodied and firm with lashings of tannin which provides a solid backbone. It has the intensity of flavour to match the structure. A solid wine that would reward substantial cellaring. Long and authoritative. Impressive stuff. 93 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review

 

70+ Year Old Vines of Tinta Barroca, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Rufete, Malvasia Preta, Donzelinho Tinto, Touriga Brasileira, Touriga Femea. A Single, 70 year old vineyard from Alijó planted in an improbable place for a red wine vineyard with blue schist soil at 580m altitude.
