From vintner Manuel Cuevas Jurado, after a period of biological aging as Manzanilla, there is an oxidative aging phase. The color of old gold, with a smooth nutty flavor, aromas of caramel, and a long, elegant aftertaste.
Lustau Amontillado de Sanlucar de Barrameda “Cuevas Jurado 1/21”
The name Emilio Lustau has not only become synonymous with highest quality sherry, it has transcended the traditional sherry market to establish a whole new category of sophisticated drinking. Think ‘Lustau’ and one does not think of musty, sticky brown liquids in a previous generation’s glassware. ‘Lustau’ is about super-fresh tapas and cutting-edge food and wine pairing. It is about complexity and harmony, elegance and balance, intensity and persistence. This is 21st century wine.
