‘Suave and sophisticated with multi-faceted maple, roasted nuts, cinnamon spice and crushed oranges unfolding to the deeply creamy and intoxicating palate. Very long and intriguing.’ – Decanter World Wine Awards, 95/100 (Gold)

‘Quite similar to the wine bottled by the Almacenista himself, the NV Palo Cortado de Jerez Almacenista Cayetano del Pino was selected from 22 botas aged in Jerez, which must have at some point held wine aged under flor, as it's sharp and pungent while it also has some creaminess and it's very long, lifted by a spirity finish. The wine is around 20 years of age and is a textbook example of what a Palo Cortado should be.’ – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 93/100

‘Intensely nutty. Caramelised apricots and orange marmalade with a gorgeous bitter-orange twist. Gorgeous, impressive intensity and richness. Powerful and long.’ – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20

‘Old gold in color with amber reflections. Very bright and clean. A delicate yet pungent nose, with almond-like aromas that remind of its biological aging phase. Velvety and round on the palate. Surprisingly gliceric. Its endless aftertaste has a comforting bitterness that leaves the palate clean and ready for more.’ – Winemaker

Producer information 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.
