Emilio Lustau, Puerto Fino 375ml NVSpain, Jerez
'Bright, with lemon pulp, talc and chamomile notes. A chalky edge holds the finish, giving this a dried, chiseled feel. Drink now.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (Sep 2018), 90/100
'Extremely pale greenish straw. Amazingly, recalls nothing more than a struck-match white burgundy on the nose. Mmm. There’s even quite a similarity on the palate! Though with the flor/bready overlay. Really fun. Very good acidity and a little bit of astringency. GV?' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2019), 17/20
'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.' – Winemaker

About Emilio Lustau:
Emilio Lustau was created in 1896 by José Ruiz-Berdejo who was an almacenista in Jerez. Today, the historic producer is considered the global standard-bearer for top quality Sherry. Lustau was named Best Spanish Producer at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London, while the oenologist Manuel Lozano, who sadly passed away in 2016, was awarded the Best Fortified Winemaker title seven years in a row. Lustau’s philosophy has remained the same since its inception in 1896: the pursuit of the highest quality in order to offer the widest and finest range of Sherry.
