Lustau is one of the leading producers in Jerez. As well as producing their own sherries from the Solera Reserva range, Lustau has also pioneered the concept of Almacenista bottlings - choosing specific plots from the warehouses of small independent sherry maturers and bottling them separately.
Lustau PX San Emilio NV 37.5cl
The Lustau San Emilio Pedro Ximenez is almost black in colour, with a pronounced and delicious bouquet of the essence of sweet raisins. The taste is very sweet, smooth and pronounced, with dried raisins and sweet grape juice. 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.- WE 93 points.
