Luis Seabra - Granito Cru Dao Branco 2020
Luis Seabra Description
While red field blends from Dão are appearing more frequently in the US market, white blends are less common. This example is the perfect representation of what a traditional white wine from this area would have tasted like a century ago, with two local varieties balancing out the region’s noble white grape, Encruzado.
60% Encruzado, 30% Bical, 10% Cercial. Sustainably grown vines planted around 1987 tended in granitic soils with quartz. This is a vegan wine.
A famously talented home cook, Seabra loves to serve this wine with grilled fish or shellfish, and recommends the bright acidity as a counterpoint to creamy sauces. Other pairings include risotto, anything served with lots of butter, and aged cheeses.
