Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Tinto 2019

$120.00

80 year old vines of Rufete, Touriga Franca, Tinta Carvalha, Alicante Bouchet, Donzelinho Tinto, Malvazia Preta and others. From 2 individual vineyards, vinified separately, with 100% whole bunch inclusion. Wild fermented, maceration of 29 days and aged in 228litre used French oak barrels for 22 months.

Stunning, gorgeous succulent fruits of cherry, cream, kirsch, blackberry, violets, fresh compost and ferrous nuances. Incredible power without heaviness, great palate width and ripe fruit without sweetness. Super tight palate, plush, mineral and chalky mouthfeel, tightening up on the finish. Curiously, the tannins tighten their grip with time in the glass, suggesting a very long and delightful life. Waters Wine Co

 

Very deep, bold, youthful red-purple colour; the bouquet releases walnutty oak first-up, and a whiff of acetone, dark fruit aromas lurking beneath. The wine is full-bodied and very firm, loaded with tannins that provide a solid grip to the finish and aftertaste. A trace of VA doesn’t worry the wine. Quite a lot of oak has been applied. Powerful and long, big structure and lots of muscle: a wine of serious intent which seems built for aging. Impressive. 95 Points – Huon Hooke, The Wine Front
