Description

Dark mahogany in colour with green-amber edge. It offers vibrant notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, shoe polish, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, all very well integrated. On the palate it is smooth and rich at the beginning, full of prune and burned oranges peel flavours. Provocative spicy notes appear just before its nuttiness and terrific acidity cuts through the sweetness. With a truly unforgettable finish.

Each wine (Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez) is matured, separately in its own solera for 12 years. Once blended together, the resulting sherry is returned to a 45-cask solera for a further 3 years ageing. In centuries gone by, casks with sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies and were found to develop an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style of sherry in the East India wine.

From Lustau’s founding in 1896 to now, the philosophy has remained the same: the pursuit of the highest quality to offer the market the widest and finest range of Sherry. This philosophy has produced award-winning wines sold around the world. The team of experts at Lustau has worked diligently for more than 120 years to shape the character and personality of our wines and give our consumers the best product possible.

Today, Lustau owns six 19th-century bodega buildings in the center of Jerez. Lustau has been given numerous awards, ranging from Best Spanish Winery to Best Sherry Producer. Our team has also received their fair share of awards, with our cellar master, Sergio Martinez, being recognized as the Best Fortified Wine Maker three years running.
