Emilo Lustau Oloroso Anada 1997 Sherry (50cl Bottle) Emilo Lustau Oloroso Anada 1997 Sherry (50cl Bottle)

Vintage sherries or añadas are rare - they go against the regular flow of the solera system. The Lustau Añada 1997 is the youngest of the Lustau vintages so far and it was matured in American oak for more than 13 years until it was bottled in December 2010. It received a gold medal at the 2013 IWC competition and silver at the IWSC.

VINEYARD
Bodegas Emilio Lustau was founded in 1896 and currently owns 220 hectares of vines, with one vineyard in one in Chipiona and one in Montegilillo, to the north and north-east of Jerez de la Frontèra respectively

All the soils are the classic albariza of Jerez

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Palomino Fino

VINIFICATION
The grapes are harvested in early September and only the free run juice is used. The must then undergoes temperature controlled fermentation before being fortified to retain the sweetness and in preparation to the ageing process.

The wine was aged in American oak casks for thirteen years. The production was 14,000 bottles.

TASTING NOTE
The Lustau Oloroso Anada 1997 has an intense dried fruits nose (especially figs and dates) with a particular aroma of toasted wood and even freshly laid tar. The palate is sweet, but not sticky in any way and shows ripe tropical fruits with a gingery warmth on the finish.
