Lustau East India Solera Sherry
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla|
Wine AdvocateReaders looking for something weighty, sweet, and provocative should check out the non-vintage East India Solera. A blend of soleras averaging 15 to 50 years of age, it boasts a dark amber color as well as a huge nose of melted toffee, caramel, figs, and prunes. This over-the-top yet surprisingly vibrant (because of good acidity) effort is best drunk as dessert at the end of a meal.
International Wine CellarDeep mahogany color. Pure, distinctly dried-fruit (figs and dates) nose. A luscious, decidedly sweet, but balanced dessert wine with coffee, chocolate, date and apricot flavors. 90 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer
Wine SpectatorRich and concentrated with coffee and caramel flavors in a balanced presentation. Picks up a grilled nut accent on the finish. Solid and complex, but not cloying.
