The aromas are reminiscent of figs, raisins and dates. Enormously sweet, velvety and soft on the palate, well balanced, with a very long finish.. 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.
