70% Rabigato, with the remaining balance being provided by a field blend of Codega (10%), Gouveio (10%) and Viosinho Dozelino Branco (10%) from sustainably farmed vineyards planted from 1920-1933. The wine is then spontaneously fermented in used barrels using indigenous yeast present on the fruit. It spends 9 months on the lees before ageing for a further 12 months in used French oak barrels. First impressions are not of oak but mineral, stony purity, supported by a creamy oak texture. Deep and chewy with really bright acidity and plush citrus fruit – stunning.

White White Blend 12.5%

Luis Seabra
In 2012, Luis Seabra quit his prestigious role as head winemaker at Niepoort to strike out on his own. After many years working under some of the more renowned winemakers in the world, he felt the time was right to put his energy into a first solo project. From his high-altitude vineyards in the Douro, he produces both whites and reds that are based on blends of native grape varieties from ancient, co-planted vineyards on a combination of soil types. Luis’ philosophy is encapsulated by the name ‘Cru’ under which he bottles his wines. Meaning raw, his aim is to produce wines that offer a sense of place in a true, honest manner. He only adds a tiny dose of sulphur, ensuring the wines are a true representation of their unique terroirs.
