Emilio Lustau Light Fino Jarana 750ml (Jerez)
The name Emilio Lustau has not only become synonymous with highest quality sherry, it has transcended the traditional sherry market to establish a whole new category of sophisticated drinking. Think 'Lustau' and one does not think of musty, sticky brown liquids in a previous generation's glassware. 'Lustau' is about super-fresh tapas and cutting-edge food and wine pairing. It is about complexity and harmony, elegance and balance., intensity and persistence. This is 21st century wine.
Aged in American oak casks at the Lustau's bodegas in Jerez, the Reserva Fino Jarana sherry is matured through a system of barrels called Solera. It takes several years of topping up the cellared Lustau Reserva barrels with wines from various vintages, to reach the age of consistency in the Solera at which the Fino comes of age.
Pale straw colour, fresh and aromatic. This is a grand Fino, dry and crisp on the palate, yet rich and with a full finish. “Brilliant light straw colour, earthy-mineral nose, subtle and lightly spiced flavors. Dry and soft with a very good texture, full finish with length" -Gerald Boyd. Serve chilled, and once opened, treat the wine as you would a white table wine. Keep in the refrigerator, but consume within a few days, for optimum freshness. A perfect dry apéritif, this is the heart-starting, and very cool fortified white to keep in the fridge for serious thirst quenching, or to serve with good tapas, fresh seafood, oysters and white fish dishes
