'A thrilling example of a Palo Cortado! Captivating layers of dried fruit, toast, chestnuts and seaweed entwined with savoury coffee and cacao; energetic and unctuous with a really elegant underlying austerity and a never ending finish. Amazing!' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 97/100

'The NV Palo Cortado VORS, medium brown-colored, it is a little cloudy. The off-dry (if such thing is possible), perfumed nose is a mixture of old wood, hazelnuts, varnish and a touch of toffee. The pungent palate is intensely dry and sharp, with plenty of hazelnut and varnished wood flavors, ending with a mineral salty note. It has a gentle nose and a wild palate.' – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 94/100

‘Shows a light hint of sweetness as date and gingerbread notes mingle with praline, roasted almond and dried blood orange flavors. Turns distinctly dry through the finish, with a lingering sandalwood edge. Drink now.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 92/100

'Light golden brown. Savoury with an aroma polished wood. Savoury and nutty. Smooth but with a real kick of long-aged bitter orange. Dry but has a sweetness from the reduction. Concentration may have given a higher residual sugar of 10 g/l . Power and sour intensity on the finish.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20

'Coppery topaz in color. Vibrant pecan nut aromas. Slightly bitter in the mouth, reminiscent of dark chocolate and walnuts, with great length.' – 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.
