Description
 
Emilio Lustau, S.A. is one of the most exclusive bodegas around today in Jerez de la Frontera. It was founded in 1896 as a wine storage facility for the Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza (Our Lady of Hope) vineyards, on the outskirts of Jerez. Lustau owns over 200 hectares of vineyards, most of which are typically Jerez white albariza soils, and suit the main sherry grape, palomino. The limestone-based soils are able to absorb rain during the wet winters, and then release the moisture to the scorched wine during the hot summers. Closer to the coast, Lustau’s vineyard soils are sandier, and much better suited to the grapes used to make its sweeter wines, pedro ximénez and moscatel.

A mind-blowing sherry is the non-vintage Palo Cortado Peninsula Solera Reserva. Like all Lustau sherries except for the East India, it is made from the Palomino varietal. A dry, crisp, full-throttle, intense sherry offering incredibly complex, nutty aromas, it represents a style that falls between the Amontillado and the more oxidized, heavier Oloroso.
