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: Palomino, Pedro Ximènez. Two of Lustau's exceptional wines are the basis of this elegant vermouth with character: an Amontillado, complex and intense, and a Pedro Ximénez, sweet and silky. With this base, and a careful selection of 10 botanicals infused separately, Lustau Red Vermouth achieves a perfect balance, where the high quality of its wines rules. Its exceptional quality is widely recognized, its different, tasty, and sweet character leaves no one indifferent.
An interesting newcomer to the U.S. market, the base of this vermouth is rich, nutty Sherry—amontillado andPedro Ximenez, to be precise. It has a coffee-brown hue and a bright dried-herb scent. The palate wows with sticky toffee, dried apricot, orange peel and cocoa. Ideal for adding complexity to drinks featuring dark spirits. ~92 Wine Enthusiast
