Lustau Oloroso 'Almacenista', Pata Galina



Quick Overview

Oloroso, as its name suggests, is a wine with an enormous aromatic complexity. Due to its powerful personality it can be perfectly matched with even the most complex and sophisticated dishes, be they mature cheeses, game, or stews, which bring out its full potential.



The main occupation of Don Juan García Jarana is running a motorcycle shop ‘Dos Ruedas’, but in his spare time he also manages a 100 years old bodega in the Santiago neighbourhood, which holds around 300 butts. It includes Finos, Amontillados, Olorosos and PX.

His Olorosos are widely acclaimed and Bodegas Lustau are bottling this Oloroso ‘Pata de Gallina’ in their Almacenista series since 1989. In fact it’s one of the most popular wines in this series, which unites wines from different small bodegas that are not shipping themselves.

The wine is said to be nearly 20 years old and comes from the oldest solera in the bodega, holding 38 butts. It is supposed to have originated as a Palo Cortado and then evolved to an Oloroso profile, which could explain its elegance and unique qualities.

Pata de Gallina means hen’s foot. I’m not entirely sure where this came from, but it’s a chalk mark placed on butts that display an above average richness and smoothness, due to high levels of glycerol. While these wines are completely dry, the glycerol gives them a full body and makes them seem sweeter and rounder than they actually are.

Nose: very elegant. Notes of Liège pear syrup and caramelized peanuts. Cinnamon. Molasses and toffee. Some dried figs and dates, with brighter hints of orange zest. Subtle hints of old oak and sweet coffee as well.

Mouth: beautifully rounded and oily, with just a hint of sweetness. Quite fruity, both fresh berry fruits and dried figs. Very smooth, with a nice acidity of raspberry juice and lemon peel. Not at all tangy or austere, but it’s quite powerful with a bit of alcohol coming out. Dry and very long finish.
