Emilio Lustau was established in 1896 and was initially a small family concern until the founder`s son-in-law placed it on a business footing.
The firm is perhaps best known as pioneering the Almacenista system, whereby individual dry sherries are produced from small private holdings. These are bottled under Lustau`s name but with the individual bodega's name on the label as well. Today they are amongst the most sought-out Sherries in the region.
The firm also produces superb wines from its recently acquired 170 hectare Montenegrillo vineyard.
Dark mahogany colour with a iodine rim. Intense floral and citric aromas, showing Moscatel varietal at its best. Smooth and rich on the palate, reminiscent of dried fruits and spices. This wine has great length and sweetness, yet balanced by its natural acidity.
Serve slightly chilled (between 10-12ÂºC) as a dessert wine. Perfect with citrus flavoured and egg-based desserts or rich fruit cakes.
