Lustau East India Solera 75cl

Lustau East India Solera 75cl is an award-winning sweet sherry, from a distinguished producer, reminiscent of rich, concentrated fig and raisin fruits.

Made from Palomino Fino and sweetened with Pedro Ximenez, Lustau East India Solera 75cl is perfect with mature cheddar cheese and light desserts and cakes

The history of Bodegas Lustau dates back to 1896, when it was founded by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo.

He grew some vines in his own finca called Finca Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, aged the wines for some time and then sold them to bigger houses that commercialized and exported the wines.

This is what is called an almacenista, a warehouser or stock keeper.

The “Finos and Manzanillas,” with the delicacy and refinement that is the result of the biological aging process, are the perfect accompaniment to seafood and shellfish.

Lustau East India Solera 75cl pair exceptionally well with Japanese dishes like sushi and sashimi. 

Given their low levels of acidity, these two wines go well with salads, dressings, cold soups seasoned with vinegar, like gazpacho and salmorejo. 

The almost sweet nuances of Iberian ham, one of the gastronomic jewels of Spanish cuisine, are enhanced by the dry flavour of Fino and Manzanilla. The freshness of the wine awakens our palate after each bite. 

Pedro Ximenez is made exclusively from overripe Pedro Ximénez grapes. Once picked, the grapes are laid out in the sun- bunches being extended on rush mats in the vine until they are practically raisins. This process is known as “soleo”. 

Moscatel wines are produced with 100 per cent Moscatel de Chipiona grapes, harvested when they are at a high point of maturation. http://www.lustau.es/en/

Wine tasters try every batch of new wine in order to distinguish its characteristics and establish the following classification: 

– Finos or Manzanillas: those pale coloured wines of great fineness. 

– Olorosos: those wines with greater body and structure.

For full enjoyment, we recommend serving these wines very cold, between 6º and 8º C.

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge Quick View

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge 2016

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge is made in the same style as the rimage wines of Banyuls. From 100% Grenache Noir grown on the southfacing broken schists and marne soils and yields of 25 hl/ha, the grapes are subsequently sorted, destemmed and vinified in the normal way. The alcohol is added while the wine is still in the vat (mutage sur les grains), which slows down the final fermentation, allowing a longer period of maceration and thereby conferring greater richness. This Maury is ruby with violet tints and the nose eloquently expresses framboise, cherry and crème-de-cassis. It is smooth in the mouth, the red fruits reinforced by bitter chocolate and spice as well as fine tannins. 0.75l bottle. This fleshy, yet refreshing, fruity wine is a perfect match for red fruit or chocolate desserts. It is a seductive, pure Grenache varietal that also pairs well with sweet and sour dishes.

Fonseca Terra Prima

Silky-smooth aromas of crushed red berry fruits and chocolate with little herbal nuances. On the palate that herbal quality is still there but some pure, velvety, cherry and plum fruit fills in nicely, the subtle sweetness developing but staying balanced by a certain acidity and a fairly nimble, lighter-bodied character. A spicy finish too in a style that is not heavy and very sippable. 89/100 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com
