This is delicious, moreish and so darn excellent.
About The Wine
If you want a peek at the unique and utterly delicious white wines made by Portuguese renegade Luis Seabra, this is the place to start.
The Ilimitado Branco - a field blend of local varieties Rabigato, Codega, Gouveiu and Viosinho - shows a little more flesh and ripe stonefruit than the two higher-level Seabra whites, however the seaspray/saline notes and the savoury kick that runs through the whole range shows here too in spades.
It's a wonderful thing to drink. Full of texture and energy and an exotic mix of flavours that sucks you back to the glass again and again.
About Luis Seabra

He forged a formidable reputation for crafting some of the region's finest table wines and fortifieds during his tenure as winemaker at the regional standard-bearer, Niepoort.
The launch of his eponymous label was his chance to make wines according to his own style preferences. These are fascinating and detailed table wines crafted from old-vine, sensitively-farmed vineyards along the famed Douro terraces.
The high altitude and dry conditions are perfect for creating the focus and tension Seabra seeks in his creations. Since garnering wide acclaim for his cuveés, Seabra has reinvigorated international attention toward his home.
