Lustau Deluxe Cream Capataz Andres
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla|
"Each component of this blend –Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez wines- is aged individually in its own solera in Jerez de la Frontera. Mahogany color with coppery reflections. Concentrated aromas of smoky wood, dates, dry figs and raisins. Fresh, silky with a balanced acidity. A tribute to our Capataz Andrés Pérez, who worked in Lustau in the 60’s as Cellar Master."
This is brown-gold in color, its maple, chocolate and raisin aromas extending onto the smooth, layered palate. Toasty chocolate, vanilla and coffee flavors are ribbed with acidity; they carry through a sweeter finish, where dried fig and date notes take over.
Rather fresh for a cream style, with raisin, fruitcake and toffee notes, laced with a lively green tea edge. Gentle finish. Drink now. 1,600 cases made.
