Luis Seabra made his name as winemaker for famed Portugese house Niepoort, before leaving to set up his own project in 2013.
His aim is to produce wines that offer a sense of place in a true, honest manner. He only adds a tiny dose of sulphur, ensuring the wines are a true representation of their unique terroirs.
Good concentration of fruit with balanced acidity, rich mouthfeel and a long, mineral finish. The lemon-mineral punch of great Burgundy, plus a ripe pear fruitiness, white poppy and remarkable density.
