Lustau 'Peninsula' Palo Cortado

Availability: In stock

Light amber in colour. This exceptional sherry brings together the finesse and delicacy of an Amontillado with the richness and body of an Oloroso. A rare style of sherry, it is dry with rich, concentrated flavours, reminiscent of spices and dark chocolate.

Serve between 14-15ºC in a white wine glass with olives, nuts, cheese or "serrano“ ham. This wine can accompany consommés, game soups, cold and smoked meats, foie-gras and many spicy Asian dishes.

More information:
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.

"Powerful aromatic and balsamic nose with more delicate macadamias and toffees on palate. Long and vivid."  Bronze Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards 2012

"This leads with smoked orange peel and date notes, backed by a dry, defined core of clove, woodspice and prune eau de vie flavors that linger through the finish."  -Wine Spectator, February 2012

"Dark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas. It’s a bit tangy, but being as zesty as it is propels maple, white chocolate and apricot flavors. This one has depth and a very long finish, which makes it a regal but still approachable palo cortado. Overall it’s similar to an amontillado, but with more pulsing, piercing acidity." 90 points, Wine Enthusiast, February 2009

"One of my favorites among the drier, lighter-styled Sherries is the non-vintage Palo Cortado Peninsula. Medium amber-colored, with great balance, intensity, and acidity as well as a scorched earth/roasted nut character, it is a stunning, flavorful yet light, crisp Sherry." 92 points, Wine Advocate
