The weight of Pedro Ximenez (PX) grapes is evident in this sherry that is surprisingly also very fresh. Loaded with flavors of dried red plums, caramel, toffee, coffee, roasted walnuts, and chocolate ganache. This sherry is powerful and sweet but so well balanced by refreshing acidity. Pair with chocolate, toffee or caramel based desserts, or on its own as dessert.

The history of Lustau starts in 1896, when it was founded by Don Jose Ruiz-Bodejo. He was what is known as an almacenista (basically a storekeeper).  In other words, he grew some of his vines in his own vineyard, made then aged the wines or a period of time, and sold them to an exporter who further exported or commercialized them. After his death in 1930, the operation was moved to Jerez and expanded. It was Ruiz-Bodejo's son-in-law that established the Lustau Solera Reserva wines composed of old stocks of wines from different almacenistas.
