'The NV Amontillado VORS is a huge step up in quality and complexity from the rest of Amontillados. Bright brown color, extremely saline in the palate, sharp as a knife. One has to wonder if in the past the origin of this wine could have been Manzanilla rather than Fino. It is clean with a complex nose of curry, old wood, wax, antique shop and shoe polish as well as an extremely concentrated palate. 2013-2021.' – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 97/100

'Singed almond, sandalwood, ginger, sesame oil and bitter orange notes move in lockstep in this taut, bone-dry amontillado. Long finish. Drink now.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100

'Light orange brown. Smoky and nutty, really savoury, then gorgeous intensity of bone-dry nutty flavour. Goes on and on with that burnt-orange flavour. So fresh and salty and mouth-watering.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 18/20

'Dark amber in color, with aromas reminiscent of butterscotch, noble wood, old leather and furniture polish. Savory, almost saline, typical of the concentration found in the Amontillados of such long aging.' – 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.
