Lustau "East India Solera" Sherry

SKU #250001 92 points Wine & Spirits

 This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background.  (6/2011)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a ripe, honeyed style of Sherry with deep brown sugar and cinnamon aromas. Its solid palate is under control and not syrupy, tapering into brown sugar and fig flavors. Chocolate and fig notes linger on the long finish. (MS)  (6/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Mid nut brown. Lots of raisiny sweetness on the nose, but much more complexity on the palate, burnt orange and bitter toffee adding freshness to the sweetness. Incredible length. (JH) 17.5/20  (3/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV East India Solera is a Cream, a category I have not really covered in this article, which is a blend of 12-year-old Don Nuno Oloroso (80%) and San Emilio PX which is also about 12 years old, blended and aged together for a further three years in a special, slightly warmer part of the winery which replicates perhaps the character of the wines that traveled by boat to India or elsewhere. Mahogany colored with a green-amber edge, it has the nose of an old wine with notes of antique shop, wax, shoe polish, noble wood, and a touch of spices, dates and prunes, all of it very well integrated. The palate is spicy and sweet (it has 130 grams of sugar) again very integrated. At this price level it represents good value and should go well with cheeses. (LG)  (8/2013)

Wine Spectator

 Sweet and lush, with inviting rum raisin, toffee and Christmas pudding notes, all relatively fresh and gentle in feel. Stays light-footed in the end. (JM)  (8/2016)
