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.
Pale straw colour, dry, light and smooth. This Fino is laced with scents of the sea and profound flor aromas. Clean and fresh, with a slight taste of tangy yeast.
Serve chilled (between 7-9 ÂºC). Once opened keep in the refrigerator and consume within a few days for optimum freshness. An excellent aperitif or accompaniment to â€œtapas" such as ham, almonds or cheese. Try it also with seafood, sushi and sashimi.
