External Reviews for Lustau Oloroso Don Nuño Solera Reserva
The non-vintage Rare Cream, Superior is a moderately sweet, pleasant Sherry. Do your old grandmother a favor and give her this sophisticated drink instead of Harvey’s Bristol Cream.
The intensity of this Sherry comes from the alcohol. Roasted walnut, caramel and molasses are the flavors. Moderate length. Drink now.
Opens with a wonderful set of nutty, dry aromas along with pit fruits like nectarines, apricot and peach. The palate is a cacaphony of toasty, peppery flavors sweetened by caramel and brown sugar. It has a fine feel and balance, and then finishing notes of browned butter and sautandeacute;ed mushroom. Delicious oloroso.
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.
Here’s a dessert wine to make your head spin. Rich molasses nose suggests the richness delivered on the sweet, lush palate.
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.
