Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Wine drinkers are lucky that such a quality producer still manages to deliver on quality in an entry level product. It is a shame that Sherry has been so unpopular for a time; always seen as a drink for old ladies, alcoholics, or diletant wine enthusiasts. It's actually very labour intensive and a million things can go wrong. Lustau should stand out as your benchmark quality Sherry.
The colour is a beautiful amber, with a light rim and a dark core.
It is a dry style, with a lot of funky aromas. Charred wood, maple syrup, mushroon, cardamom, cocoa, and assam tea jump to mind. The fruit are subtle, but present. A great lemon zing is there on the nose and even more present on the palate.
It is rich and full, but not particularly alcoholic, for a Sherry. there are some candied almond and pecan notes. Smoke and wood. Bruised apple too.
Lustau has been operating for a very long time and they are the standard bearers for tradition in Xeres. Many styles that would have been lost forever are still upheld by this great producer. If you enjoyed this example of quality Sherry, try their East India which is usually available at Christmas. It is a proprietary blending of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso. Pair either with tapas or charcuterie.

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.
