Pedro Ximénez grapes are laid out in the sun after picking until they are practically raisins. After that the fermentation starts slowly and its halted to maintain all the natural sugars.
The resulting wine ages in for 12 years in contact with the air in Jerez de la Frontera. Ebony in colour with iodine highlights. The aromas are reminiscent of figs, raisins and dates. Enormously sweet, velvety and soft on the palate, well balanced, with a very long finish.
Serve with rich desserts, cakes and pastries, or pour over vanilla ice cream. Perfect companion to strong blue cheeses. Ideal as a digestive.
Founded in 1896 Lustau has an enviable reputation for producing some of the finest sherry in the World from their buildings located in the centre of Jerez.
