Emilio Lustau Jerez Dry Amontillado Los Arcos NV

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

A more flattering style, with an off-dry edge to the walnut paste, hazelnut, date and clove-studded orange notes, which show nice focus and zip on the finish. Drink now. -JM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Andalucia in Spain. N.V. Emilio Lustau Jerez Dry Amontillado Los Arcos 750ml

Emilio Lustau:
Emilio Lustau S.A. was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo. It was a humble beginning: Don José, a secretary in the courts of justice, used to cultivate the vineyards at his estate “Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza”, where he stored and aged the wines and afterwards sold them to the larger exporting companies.

Emilio Lustau S.A. was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo. It was a humble beginning: Don José, a secretary in the courts of justice, used to cultivate the vineyards at his estate “Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza”, where he stored and aged the wines and afterwards sold them to the larger exporting companies. He was in fact what is known as an “almacenista”. In 1940, his son-in-law Don Emilio Lustau Ortega moved the bodega to the Santiago district, in the old quarter of Jerez. There, in buildings which formed a part of the ancient Moorish city wall, he expanded the business gradually, still as an “almacenista”. During the seventies the company continued expanding. The first step was building new bodegas at the family estate “Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza”. Then, at the beginning of the eighties and under the management of Rafael Balao, Lustau became one of the most innovative companies in Jerez. Rafael Balao had the intuition that Lustau had to be at the forefront of quality. His ideas combined tradition and innovation and carved out the way for identifying Lustau with quality and prestige. The Lustau Solera Reserva range was created from the original Lustau stocks from its beginnings as an “almacenista”. These stocks were joined by a fine selection of Sherry wines from different “almacenistas”, consisting of very special wines from small independent wine-producers, to be offered to select clients. These Sherries represent some of the best wines of the area. In 1988 Lustau made a further step towards innovation introducing a new bottle design for its wines. Read less

The non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos Solera Reserva reveals a medium amber hue along with a nutty, honeyed, dry personality with great acid. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Andalucia in Spain. N.V. Emilio Lustau Jerez Dry Amontillado Los Arcos 750ml
