A beautiful blend of Duoro red varieties and techniques presented in a harmonious table wine.
In the Duoro there are numerous varieties grown in a whole range of situations. From outrageously steep terraced slopes to gentler flat areas. The common denominator is that most are on shist rock. Hence the name, which translates as something like shist limitless. The vineyards used here are between 35 to 60 years old and the wines are made with a variety of techniques including classic foot-treading in lagares.
Great for pairing with shashlik, barbecued meat, grilled veggies, rich pasta sauces or even burgers.
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.
