Food Pairings for Lustau Solera Reserva Dry Amontillado Sherry Los Arcos
Bottled March 9th 2007. 100% Palomino Fino. Amontillados begin life as finos or manzanillas, but the flor layer is either naturally or intentionally destroyed, so the fino wines become exposed to oxygen while in the solera system. Beautiful tawny brown color which is similar to older tawny ports. Aromatic nose of roasted nuts, dried raisins, a little sweet tobacco. Medium to full bodied, 18.5% abv, good acidity, rich nutty finish with a slight perception of sweetness but finishing completely dry. Not to complex and I would prefer it better if it were a little fresher but a good solid amontillado none the less. 3/5
External Reviews for Lustau Solera Reserva Dry Amontillado Sherry Los Arcos
Reticent aromas of almonds and limestone give way to this wineandrsquo;s generous flavors of green apple and a subtle touch of orange zest. Itandrsquo;s all shaped by spritzy, mouthwatering acidity. Best Buy.
Rich, deep and complex nutty aromas. Fine balance between oxidative qualities and a fresh, nutty character.
This wonderful sherry is a perfect end-of-the-day cocktail substitute. Crisp and loaded with flavor, it exudes a refined aroma that combines crushed walnuts, dried raisins, and apricots with a touch of smokiness.
Elegant and classically proportioned, this sherry gives you plenty of briny freshness but adds a rich, smoky, nutty complexity. Itrsquo;s clean and long on the finish, vibrant and harmonious. Beautifully crafted.
Round style, yet not without good bite underneath. Boasts caramel, bitter cocoa and iodine notes, picking up roasted nut on the lingering finish. Drink now.
A more flattering style, with an off-dry edge to the walnut paste, hazelnut, date and clove-studded orange notes, which show nice focus and zip on the finish. Drink now.
#82: A dry version of a traditional Amontillado Sherry, this fortifies wine is produced using the solera system customary in south-western Spain's Jerez region and designed to produce a consistent style from year to year. Owned by Luis Caballero Florido, the Lustau estate encompasses 540 acres of vines, the source of the grapes for this 100 percent Palomino wine. The wine is aged in 500-liter American oak barrels in a facility in the heart of Jerez de la Frontera.
A textbook Amontillado of great maturity. Naturally dry and soft, its palate gives a hint of wood and smoky raisins. A powerful and distinctive nutty bouque. Better Amontillado would be difficult to find. Awarded Silver Medal at IWC 2005. Drink as a warming apéritif. Serve slightly chilled. Alcohol:18.5% by volume. Grape Variety:Palomino Fino.
