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.

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.
