Bodegas Lustau, 3 En Rama, Fino, El Puerto de Santa María, Spain (2019 release)

Description

This wine is a bin-end, discounted by 20%. Excludes BBX stock.

Lustau's Fino del Puerto has an intensely fruity character in its infancy with notes of ripe yellow apples, pears and white peach all present. In many ways it is more like white wine than a Sherry on the nose. The palate gives away its origins though; it is very pure with a savoury backbone. Delicate touches of dried apricot vie with a hint of marmite on the subtle, yet long finish. Drink now to spring 2020.
Catriona Felstead MW, Buyer (June 2019)

About this WINE

Bodegas Emilio Lustau

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.

Fino

Fino

Fino Sherries, made from Palomino grapes, are pale-golden, light, mouthwatering-fresh and bone dry on the palate, with a delicate bouquet evocative of salted almonds.

Finos are aged under a veil of yeast called flor and has an alcohol content of between 15º and 18º. They normally undergo 3-10 years of ageing in the solera system.

Palomino Fino

Palomino Fino

Palomino, named after Fernan Yanez Palomonio, one of King Alfonso X`s knights, is the primary grape variety for Sherry styles (Fino, Manzanilla, Amontillado, Oloroso, Palo Cortado) production.

It is a high yielding variety that is widely planted in Spain producing mostly insipid thin, dull wines lacking in fruit and acidity. However it thrives on the predominantly chalk based soils of Cadiz  where it produces large bunches of golden yellow grapes, which ripen in early September. The resulting must is transparent in colour and somewhat neutral in flavour, but the subsequent wine can develop a coating of flor before maturing in the solera system and produce a whole range of intense and aromatic sherries.

It is also grown in South Africa, California, and Australia where it is fortified to make sherry-style wines.
