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 Vos Amontillado 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.
