Lustau, East India 'Solera Reserva'

SHR073

£22.50

Quick Overview

Each individual component of this blend (Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez) is aged in its own Solera. 

After blending, the wine is further aged for three years in a solera of 33 American oak casks before bottling. 

A dark mahogany colour with bronze hues. 

Concentrated aromas of ripe fruits, mocca, cocoa and toffee.

Very complex on the palate, with a clean acidity and flavour of raisins, nuts, crystallized orange and candied peel.

Food pairings: Ideal with rich cakes, egg based puddings and blue cheeses (Stilton, Gorgonzola). 

Also as an ideal digestif for the sweet-toothed.

Details

Perhaps the best value dessert wine in the Lustau portfolio. This extraordinary Cream Sherry seeks to replicate the ancient style of Cream Sherry that was discovered quite by accident. Trading ships sailing to the Indies in the 16th century frequently carried butts (barrels) of sweet sherry lashed to their decks or in their holds as ballast. After travelling through the tropics, it was discovered that the heat and humidity had matured the wine and given it a wonderful smooth texture. Lustau has recreated this process by heating and controlling the amount of air allowed in the warehouse where the East India Solera is matured. The result is an exceptional dessert wine with a smooth, sweet taste reminiscent of figs, coffee, caramel and nuts and just enough acidity to give it balance. This mouth-wateringly delicious wine can be served on its own, as a digestif, or with desserts such as puddings, tarts, cakes or chocolate-covered nuts.

"The dark amber-hued non-vintage East India Solera is essentially an old Oloroso blended with an old Pedro Ximenez, which gives it a sweet character. It offers more mature notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, spice box, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, and its terrific balancing acidity cuts through the sweetness. This delicious effort is best drunk after the meal". Wine Advocate 96
