On the nose, stone and orchard fruit dominate with flinty wet stone and white pepper laid over the dominant aromatics. On the palate the wine is impressively bright and mineral driven, with flavours of lemon, green apple and pear with a touch of floral notes and minerality.

Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco 

Producer

Luis Seabra may be a new name on the Portuguese wine scene, but he has already had a hand in crafting some of the Douro’s most exciting wines, working as Dirk Niepoort’s right-hand man from 2004 until leaving to set up his own label in 2012. He is starting small, producing just 5,000 bottles of each of these three wines.

Winemaking is minimal-intervention, and the style very much reflects the concentration of care lavished by this experienced winemaker on his tiny output: pure yet complex, more savoury than fruity, with a density of texture and long, almost salty finishes marking the wines out as something very special.

Luis Seabra is certainly a name to watch, but has also hit the ground running with a stunning début.
