2018 Luis Seabra "Xisto Ilimitado" Branco Douro

SKU #1438805 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Branco Xisto Ilimitado is a 60/20 blend of Rabigato and Viosinho, with 10% each of Códega and Gouveio, all aged for eight months in used French oak. It comes in at 12.3% alcohol this year. This was not quite bottled when seen (about two weeks away), but it is the final blend. Seabra liked his 2018s a lot. This has fine concentration for the level, focus and a fresh feel. It is a tightly wound white with a bright and lingering finish. There's not a great deal of energy, though, and it is probably best drunk on the earlier side. This winery doesn't have a lot of track record, of course, but Seabra says it can age longer than five years. That is probably true, but it is also true that it is made to be enjoyed young, so feel free to dive in. (MS)  (8/2019)

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
