About this WINE
Bodegas Emilio Lustau
Emilio Lustau was established in 1896 and was initially a small family concern until the founder`s son-in-law placed it on a business footing.
The firm is perhaps best known as pioneering the Almacenista system, whereby individual dry sherries are produced from small private holdings. These are bottled under Lustau`s name but with the individual bodega's name on the label as well. Today they are amongst the most sought-out Sherries in the region.
The firm also produces superb wines from its recently acquired 170 hectare Montenegrillo vineyard.

This wine won a Platinum medal (97 points) at the 2021 Decanter World Wine Awards.
Dark and rich, this sweet sherry from historic producer Bodegas Lustau is made from Pedro Ximénez grapes dried under the hot Spanish sun, concentrating the sweetness to create a thick, dark grape must and that is then fortified and matured in solera. With intense flavours of raisins and molasses, it’s also delicious poured onto ice cream.
Refined, fragrant, sticky Pedro Ximenez sherry with rich, hazelnut and spiced golden raisin fruit.
