Grape(s): Pedro Ximénez
Localization: Jerez, Spain
Tasting Notes: Ebony in colour with iodine highlights. The aromas are reminiscent of figs, raisins and dates. Enormously sweet, velvety and soft on the palate, well balanced, with a very long finish.
Notes: Pedro Ximénez grapes are laid out in the sun after picking until they are practically raisins. After that the fermentation starts slowly and its halted to maintain all the natural sugars.
The resulting wine ages in for 12 years in contact with the air in Jerez de la Frontera.
Food Pairing: Serve with rich desserts, cakes and pastries, or pour over vanilla ice cream. Perfect companion to for strong blue cheeses. Ideal as a digestive.
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. Our products and our team have achieved these accolades, 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.
