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.

Gold Medal, International Wine Challenge 2013

"With piercing aromas of raisin pudding, molasses and spice, this rolls out the welcome mat and more. Luscious is probably as tame as you can put it; this is a ribald sweet wine with acidic backbone and hugely intense flavors of baked brown sugar, cinnamon cake and molasses. Powerful but still racy due to bracing acidity. About as good as it gets with PX." 93 points, Wine Enthusiast, June 2009

"Caramel brown in color, with the viscosity of motor oil, this is soft yet firm, carrying flavors of walnut, dried fig and burnt sugar. Sweet but not oppressively so, with a slightly bitter finish." -Wine Spectator, November 2011
