Deep, dark brown and viscous. Redolent of ripe fruit, figs and dates. Rich, sweet, velvety and soft in the mouth, well balanced, with a long finish showing the wine's great age.

Serve between 12-13ºC in a white wine glass with rich desserts, cakes and pastries, or pour a little over the best quality vanilla ice cream. This wine can also accompany strong blue cheeses, or may simply be enjoyed as a digestif for the sweet-toothed.

Lustau Pedro Ximénez 'San Emilio' Sherry Half Bottle
More information:

The Pedro Ximénez grapes for this wine are sun-dried until they become raisins. Fermentation is arrested, in order to preserve most of the grape’s natural sugar. It is further fortified and aged in American oakcasks in Lustau's bodegas in Jerez.

Emilio Lustau, one of Spain's greatest Sherry bodegas, is named after Don Emilio Lustau Ortega, son-in-law of founder Don José Ruiz-Berdejo y Veyan. Don José, of French descent, founded the family firm in 1896 at his home in Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, but in the 1940s Don Emilio moved the firm to the Santiago district of Jerez. The firm saw significant expansion, and joined the ranks of the top Sherry producers under Don Emilio's name. The family home was never abandoned, though, and in the 1970s extensive cellars were constructed there. Emilio Lustau is now a leader in Sherry production, certainly when judged on quality.
