Details

Lustau East India Solera is the result of combining to great wines produced in the Jerez-Xérès-Sherry region.

On the one hand, an Oloroso wine made from Palomino. On the other hand, a wine made from Pedro Ximénez.

Both of them were separately aged using the Soleras and Criaderas system for over period between 15 and 50 years.

After that, the winemaker decided the blend, which usually follows the proportion of the traditional Cream wines. That is, 80% Oloroso - 20% Pedro Ximénez.

Once blended, Lustau East India Solera, by Emilio Lustau, was aged for a minimum of 3 years prior to its commercial release.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Bright, medium-high mahogany-coloured robe with some bronze tinges.

Nose

Notes of raisins, figs, grapes and plums, along with aromas of spices, coffee, toast, balsam, spices and dry fruit.

Palate

This Spanish fortified wine is dense and voluminous, but not in the least heavy. Raisins, bitter chocolate and dry fruit over a background of iodized and salty notes. Fresh acidity, sweet tannins and long, persistent finish.

Our personal opinion

A Sherry wine Lustau East India Solera is a great match with cured chesses or chocolate and dry fruit desserts.

    I don't think there is a more complex or deeper wine than Sherry. It is an acquired taste, for sure. However, when you have experienced its complexity, there is no way back. This is immensely satisfying.
