Grape(s): 85% Palomino, 15% Pedro Ximenez
Localization: Jerez, Spain
Tasting Notes: Mahogany color with coppery reflections. Concentrated aromas of smoky wood, dates, dry figs and raisins. Fresh, silky with a balanced acidity.
Attractive caramel, apricot and peach aromas drive straight to a pure, creamy palate of cinnamon apple, mocha, coffee and chocolate. It's quite smooth and balanced, and very long on the finish. Avoids all the pitfalls of sweet Sherry by maintaining its balance and mouthfeel.
Food Pairing: This wine is a perfect companion to light desserts and cakes, but can also be served with blue cheeses or just “on the rocks” with an orange slice.
The Domain: The origins of The House of Lustau date back to 1896, when Mr. José Ruiz-Berdejo, started cultivating the vines of the family’s estate in his spare time. In these humble beginnings he made wines which were then sold to larger sherry producers. This activity was known as being an almacenista. Lustau is nowadays considered a world-class benchmark for top – quality wines. Lustau has repeatedly been awarded with multiple awards and trophies from around the world. These accolades have been achieved by our products and our team, both considered best of the industry. The day-to-day work and the wisdom transmitted from generation to generation of craftsmen, come together in the care of our casks.
More than 125 years of history and expertise combined with our team’s passion and dedication shape the character and personality of our wines.
