Emilio Lustau Sherry Tasting – Ms. Ward and Alex Burge (from Europvin Italia) host a spectacular tasting of Lustau Sherries, one of Spain’s greatest sherry bodegas.
With no less than 12 different sherry’s featured, this was a rare opportunity to sample the wide range of high-end sherry produced by Lustau - including various IWC trophy winners and Parker 94’s.
Our members sampled the following:
Fino Del Puerto Gonzales Obregon
Manzanilla Pasada Cuevas Jurado
Amontillado Fino de Jerez Fontadez Florido
Single Cask Amontillado el Carro
Palo Cortado Vides
Single Cask Palo Cortado Bodega Capataz
Oloroso de Jerez Angel Zamorano
Oloroso Pata de Galina Garcia Jarana
Oloroso de Jerez Emperatriz Eugenia Gran Reserva
Tintilla de Rota
Centenary Selection PX Murillo (this one knocked my socks off!)
As a sherry newbie, I came out of this tasting in complete awe. I had no idea that sherries covered such a wide range of completely different taste profiles - from thin/dry/nutty to thick/sweet/chocolate.
What a great tasting this was - and another one that belongs on the top 10 list.
