Luis Seabra Mono C 2016

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalFrom 25 year old vines growing on yellow slate and clay soils, this was fermented in plastic and then aged in barrels. Shades of blue : primary plum, blueberry, hints of medicinal cherry, and rock roses are framed by low, downy, grippy tannins to the tight, snappy finish. This was Luis' first vintage of this wine, and it's lovely to have the opportunity to taste a straight castelão, treated with respect. Give it a slight chill and drink now.Tasted: 13 July 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
