Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Branco 2020


The DNA of the estate is present all wines, red and white, so it can be quite a surprise that varitals and vineyard locations are different. 100% Alvarinho (Albarino) from three plots. The vines are at least 25 years old, planted in granite soils around the village of Paderne, Melgaco. Handpicked, naturally fermented in old 1000-2000 litre Eastern European oak oval vats. Aged for 12 months on lees, before being racked to stainless steel for 5 months.

Peach, yellow and white, honeysuckle sage. blackcurrant, lemon zest and preserved vine leaf. Deep and concentrated, but in no way heavy. More yellow fruits on the palate, apricot, fresh lucerne, jasmine, gentle spice, mint and pithy lemon. Lanolin, fluffy, almost meringue in feel. Gentle persistence. Stunning, the best Cru Branco I’ve tasted. Waters Wine Co


Light yellow colour with a creamy bouquet combining floral and almond notes, and a hint of chicken-stock sulfides. The wine is intense and fine on the tongue with a dry but soft balance and manages to combine richness with refinement. Good persistence: a very appealing medium-bodied dry white. 95 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review
