External Reviews for Lustau Solera Reserva Dry Amontillado Sherry Los Arcos
#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.
Light and approachable, with the soft texture of a dry white wine, this offers freshness, salinity and soft, nutty touches. For pickled sardines.
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.
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.
There are no excesses to diminish this wine’s drinkability, just softness, warmth and sweetness. Touches of salt and toasted walnut flavors keep this Amontillado’s alcohol at bay.
The walnut, date, cinnamon and dried blood orange notes are backed by a long finish that lets a singed balsa wood hint hang on. Has an echo of sweetness but remains rather dry in feel. 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.
