Like all Luis Seabra wines this wine is stripped back and intended to purely express the site and vines. Rather than being single vineyard it is single soil type with a small blend of the finest grapes from vines that are over 80 years old. Rabigato and other obscure Portuguese white varieties such as Codega, Gouveio and Vinsinho Dozelino Branco, come together to give a gorgeous, pure expression of top Portuguese white wines. Comparable in quality to top whites from anywhere, yet incomparable in sense of place.
In 2013, Luis Seabra left his gig as chief winemaker at Niepoort to finally do his own thing. He makes wines that tell the story of where they are from with minimal intervention. He works hard to let the wines show their site specific character. He uses a range of old vines from varying altitudes to create balance. The wines are discrete with startling clarity of place and purpose. There's little wonder that they are winning big plaudits all over the world.
