Emilio Lustau have been one of the forerunners in quality Sherry. Known for sourcing extraordinary Sherry from private Soleras, these ‘Almacentista’ bottlings are now iconic. The secret to the success of all the Lustau wines is the age, density and balance of their wines.
The San Emilio is a luscious, rich fruit cake in a glass. Raisins, plums, chocolate, citrus peel. It has it all. It is quite sweet but perfect with Christmas pudding, poured over vanilla ice cream or just drunk because it is yum.
Jerez – The south western town that is responsible for Sherry. Sherry is a fantastic product that uses local conditions, the ‘Solera’ fractional blending system and in some styles the unique Flor yeast that grows on the top of the maturing wine to craft a wine that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world. They range from young to quite old and dry as dry can be to luscious and sweet. Dry Sherry is made with Palomino Fino, sweeter wines use Pedro Ximenez (PX) and Muscat of Alexandria (Moscatel).
