Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From Spain's highly esteemed Lustau bodega, a lovely dark amber Amontillado Sherry with aromas of burnt toffee, orange rind, dried fruit and herbs. Rich layered satiny palate with more pronounced herbal coriander and orange, evolving into extremely long buttery toffee finish. Not like the better-known dessert Sherries, this is best appreciated served around 12 C. and enjoyed with beef consommé, medium cheeses or scallops in cream sauce with fennel.
Tasted Feb. 2017
This dry sherry is a pleasure from start to finish. Orange zest and roasted nuts on the finish. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
