Emilio Lustau Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Lustau Solera Reserva Manzanilla Papirusa 2009

Member Review by Dan:

Classy an classic Manzanilla. Pale gold, gem clear. Aroma of sweet almonds and salt air. Little to no oxidation evident in the nose or on the tongue. Clean, clear passionfruit in the mid-palate followed by bracingly dry finish of lime, salt? Very refreshing.

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

From the prestigious Lustau house comes a light, dry and refreshing Manzanilla, full of yeasty, lemony, nutty aromas and that characteristic whiff of the Atlantic. Serve chilled, it's a great apéritif and perfect with shellfish.

An acquired taste, dry Sherry is not for everyone. But if you are a fan of this unique wine or are curious about southern Spain’s claim to fame, this is a nice Sherry that is slightly sweeter and a bit less salty than many Finos or Manzanillas. The wine is white, with a unique ocean-influenced flavor. It’s the textbook match for a Mediterranean lunch of grilled shrimp or steamed clams, rustic cheese, country olives and sliced ham.

Give this Manzanilla a bit of air to reveal its scent of brine and salted almonds. Its rich flavors and textures combine into a creamy, nutty bisque. Then the finish cuts that richness with freshness. For manchego.

A textbook Manzanilla, this has all the delicate simplicity of saline––almost citrus––flavors in a fresh, elegant and balanced wine that’s enchanting in its lightness. The hint of green olive in the finish brings to mind jamón Ibérico and fresh melon to match.
