Lustau Solera Reserva Capataz Andres Deluxe Cream Sherry NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Still made in the traditional way and at the original strength - one of the few examples left of what cream sherry should taste like. Deep amber in colour with the taste of sweet raisins, dates and figs. Rich sweet ripe fruit that lingers smoothly and seductively. A powerful balance of sweetness, richness and maturity. When To Drink it: As a dessert wine or as a digéstif at the end of a meal. How To Serve it: Serve at cool room temperature.

External Reviews for Lustau Solera Reserva Capataz Andres Deluxe Cream Sherry

More yellow than Lustau’s manzanilla, Jarana is a lovely, proper fino with a nose of iodine, lemon blossom and popcorn. The palate is staunch and doesn’t back down; the high-toned nut and citrus flavors seem classic and elevated. And the finish is intense and frames everything in walnut oil and toast.

The brilliant quality of Emilio Lustau’s sherries is indisputable. Sherry remains the world’s most underappreciated and undervalued beverage, as the price for this beauty attests. The crisp, light-bodied, pungent, potent Light Fino Jarana is redolent of the smells and flavors of roasted nuts. It would be amazing with Japanese sushi or rich soups.

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

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.

Clean, mineral, lime-laced nose… like great Chablis. Excellent finish of minerals and wood.

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.

Made in a traditional style, with sweetness accentuated by flavors of chestnut cream and marron glacé, this Sherry can stand in for dessert. It’s voluptuous and warm.
