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

Last reviewed in 1994 and rated Four Stars. Beautiful old copper/deep auburn color; flawless purity. Not much happening in the initial inhalations; the aroma never gets started even after seven minutes of further air contact. Entry is gracefully bittersweet, pleasantly pruny/grapy, and creamy in texture; midpalate is nicely balanced between the ripe fruit, acidity, and alcohol, but I feel that this Cream is not as impressive as it was in the 1990s. That’s why I’m dropping it one star to Three Stars. Recommended.

Here’s a dessert wine to make your head spin. Rich molasses nose suggests the richness delivered on the sweet, lush palate.

Attractive caramel, apricot and peach aromas drive straight to a pure, creamy palate of cinnamon apple, mocha, coffee and chocolate. It’s quite smooth and balanced, and very long on the finish. Avoids all the pitfalls of sweet Sherry by maintaining its balance and mouthfeel.

Don Nuno manages a precise balance of austerity and sweetness that makes it a particularly drinkable Oloroso. In this saca, the wine feels a little fat, firmed up and supported by a base of acidity and minerality. A wine for tranquil sipping after dinner.

Caramel brown in color, with the viscosity of motor oil, this is soft yet firm, carrying flavors of walnut, dried fig and burnt sugar. Sweet but not oppressively so, with a slightly bitter finish. Drink now.

The exuberant and saturated sweet flavors of sun-ripened grapes spread throughout the entire palate, sustained by firm acidity. That acidity imposes its mineral tones, without overshadowing the seductive caramel sensation that lasts. Serve it chilled as a digestif.

Elegant and complex. Beautifully balanced, this sweet Sherry bears a firm structure, lending a dryness on the finish and carrying the nut, smoke and caramel accents to a long finish. Drink now.
