Tasting Notes
Technical Details

Beautiful bright amber color with coppery reflections. This wine shows aromas of hazelnut praline and candied orange zest with nuances of furniture polish and smoked wood in the background. Dry, pungent and flavorsome, with refreshing acidity. Enormously nutty with a delicious salty spiced touch and an extremely long aftertaste.

100% Palomino grape blend.
This wine contains allergens, sulfites.
The Estate

During the early years, Bodegas Lustau operated as an ‘Almacenista’. The Lustau family began bottling their own sherries and exporting by 1950. In the 1980s they expanded their range and introduced the Almacenista range concept of buying and maturing casks from small bodegas to share excellent quality names and styles with enthusiasts around the world. In 1990 the winery was bought by the family-owned Louis Caballero group. Bodegas Lustau is considered a world-class benchmark for top-quality wines. Lustau produces all styles of sherry, from Manzanilla through to Pedro Ximénez, as well as special bottlings, single cask, VOS and VORS sherries.

Wine Making

This exclusive solera of Amontillado consists of 38 casks. It is aged in the cellars of the Castle of San Marcos in the coastal town of El Puerto de Santa María.
