About The Wine
Luis Seabra spent a decade as winemaker at Douro benchmark producer, Niepoort, crafting some of the region's most acclaimed wines.
Eventually the time came for him to step out on his own and his eponymous label was born in 2012. Since then, the acclaim has been universal for his vibrant, modern expressions of Douro table wines. He's one of the hottest names on the cutting edge of the region.
This red blend is made with traditional techniques - some whole bunch, some foot-stomping, of a bunch of different varieties from different terraced 30-60 year old vineyards across the valley.
The beauty is in the blend, where exotic spices and sweet plump fruits come together in perfect harmony. This is a belter. A wine with bucket-loads of personality.
