Lustau Sherry

Lustau East India Sherry 500ml


Lustau East India Sherry 500ml

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 of ageing. In centuries gone by, casks with sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies as ballast and were found to develop an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style of sherry in East Indian wine.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark mahogany with a green-amber edge.
Nose: It offers vibrant notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, shoe polish, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, all very well integrated.
Palate: It is smooth and rich at the beginning, full of prune and burned orange peel flavours. Provocative spicy notes appear just before their nuttiness and terrific acidity cuts through the sweetness.

Finish: Truly unforgettable.

Alc: 20%
