About the Wine
If there's a place where wine miracles exist, it is the Jerez triangle. Bodegas Lustau has the privilege of being the only winery to produce wines within the three regions of Jerez: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
This winery had its modest beginnings in 1986 when José Ruiz-Berdejo began to produce small batches of wine. Little did he know that this small winery that began as a humble dream would become one of the emblematic sherry-producing wineries in the world.
Some years later, this family-owned winery passed into the hands of the Luis Caballero company, a large producer of spirits; this change of ownership allowed a great development and growth of Bodegas Lustau.
Bodegas Lustau has been recognized worldwide thanks to its high-quality standards and constant innovation. It was named Best Spanish Winery in 2011 and Best Sherry Winery in 2014 and 2016 by the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
Since its inception, Bodegas Lustau has remained faithful to its main objective: to offer the consumer the widest and most select collection of Sherry specialties.
The winemaking team behind Lustau wines is second to none. Sergio Martínez is the main winemaker, who is backed by years and years of experience. For five consecutive years, he has been awarded as the World's Best Fortified Winemaker by the International Wine Challenge.
Tasting Notes: 100% Palomino. Pale straw-colored, with a sharp, almond-like, and mineral aroma, reminiscent of chalk and albariza. On the palate, it is dry, saline, and iodized. With a slightly bitter finish reminiscent of bread and green olives. Aged under veil of flower in Las Cruce's winery in Jerez de la Frontera. The interior climate of Jerez gives the wine a greater body and a rounder style.
Savoury, smoky nose of windfall apple and yeast, palate of peanut brittle, grapefruit, green walnut and herb. ~91 Decanter.
