Lustau Dry Oloroso Don Nuno NV

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a rich concentrated wine which is classically dry with hints of sweetness, its amber gold colour and flavours of rich bitter chocolate and baked chestnuts leave an intense lingering aftertaste. This wine finds great appeal with the connoisseur and is appreciated by most Oloroso lovers. Awarded the Sherry Trophy at the IWC 2004 and Gold Medals in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. Served often as an apéritif or just as a digéstif, the more adventurous will try it with rich food. Great with cheese. Serve at room temperature.

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

A rich concentrated wine which is classically dry with hints of sweetness, its amber gold color and flavors of rich bitter chocolate and baked chestnuts leave an intense lingering aftertaste. This wine finds great appeal with the connoisseur and is appreciated by all oloroso lovers. Awarded the Sherry Trophy at the IWC 2004 and Gold Medals in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. The secret of fine Sherry lies in its ageing and blending. A Sherry blend, whether it is a Fino from El Puerto de Santa María, an Amontillado or an Oloroso, will consist of many different wines taken from butts containing wines of different ages. A collection of butts of the same wine is known as a Solera. The work of blending is not just a craft, it is an art, using all the senses but especially the sense of smell. In the laboratory, small quantities of wines from different soleras are blended in a test tube to create a Cabeceo. The amount of wine alcohol needed to fortify the wine before bottling will also be decided at this time. Once this is made satisfactorily, it can be scaled up to produce quantities sufficient for shipping. In the Lustau bodegas, a team, headed by Juan Fuentes Romero, the Capataz General, has the responsibility for making sure that the Sherry blends maintain the high standards that have been set, for deciding on which butts of sherry are needed for a blend and how each butt is developing. The wine is created by nature: it is the job of the cellarmaster to ensure that nature receives every assistance possible. Serve as an apéritif or just as a digéstif. The more adventurous will try it with rich food. Great with cheese.

Lustau Dry Oloroso Don Nuno Sherry. Served at cool room temperature, these dry Sherries acquire a genuine, rich and nutty flavour through years of ageing in the "bodegas" of Jerez.
