About The Wine
Laser focus, a sense of tension and piercing length are the hallmarks of Luis Seabra's white wines.
Here is a single variety, Alvarinho, brought to bottle naturally by Sebra. It spends up to a year in large foudre before finishing off in stainless steel.
It's fresh, crisp and shows like some hybrid of the salty whites made of Palomino crossed with a crisp, dry Riesling... or something like that.
A truckload of citrus-driven acid and a lovely powdery texture brought forth by the time spent in oak, it's a complex and compelling thing to drink. It should cellar brilliantly too, if you are that way inclined.
