Review

This is one of the country's best Manzanillas, made according to traditional methods. Aged under a veil of flor or film of yeast, the solera system is used, whereby tiers of casks (criaderas) are arranged so that the upper rows feed their younger wines to the older wines below.

The damp micro-climate and the maritime breezes around the mouth of the River Guadalquivir make Sanlúcar de Barrameda the land of Manzanilla, and give a distinctive character to this particular wine.

A pale straw colour, the nose carries aromas reminiscent of the sea breeze. Dry, light and fresh, with pungency and a clean palate, it shows great delcacy.

Clean, crisp, refreshing

Having visited the Lustau Bodega twice, this is the sherry I look forward to sampling, every time. On the surface, it is clean, crisp, refreshing, with just a hint of the sea. However there are also a number of subtle complexities with hints of almonds, lemon and chamomile that make this a slightly more mature, quality Manzanilla.

Splendido aperitivo

Vino molto secco con spiccata mineralità. Accompagna bene olive, mandorle tostate, salmone affumicato e prosciutto crudo ma anche tortellini in brodo. Ottimo rapporto tra qualità e prezzo. Un vino da avere sempre in cantina.

Emilio Lustau

The original company was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo, a wholesaler who grew vines on an estate that is still in the family, and sold his wines to the large exporting bodegas. Don Emilio Lustau Ortega, his son-in-law, established the bodega in 1940 in the old quarter of Jerez de la Frontera, from where the company has been exporting its wines since 1950. Over the next 40 years, there was considerable development, including new bodega facilities, until in 1990 the ...
