Join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! ”
This week featuring: Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado, Douro 2017
The Douro region has hundreds of years of incredible winemaking under their belt, but all that effort has been spent in the production of the dessert wine Port. Luis Seabra, a former winemaker at the famed Port house Nieeport, has shifted his attention to unique white varietals like Rabigato and Codega that thrive in the prolific schist soils of the Douro. In the glass, the wine may look cloudy, but the aromas of fresh squeezed lemon, bosc pear and white lilies set the tone for what the palate delivers. The creamy yet edgy mouthfeel is a perfect compliment to salty oysters or a citrus bathed white fish. I can’t wait to see what other surprises the Douro valley has in store for the world of wine.
