You want sweet? Here’s sugar in the sweetest way you can imagine. Caramelized walnut and pecan, dates and raisins. Wonderful stuff balanced with enough palate-cleansing acid that it doesn’t cloy.
Lustau Amontillado la Plaza Vieja
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.
