Lustau Deluxe Cream Sherry "Capataz Andres"
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Varieties: Pedro Ximenez
Tasting Notes: Aged in American oak casks in the traditional Solera system in Lustau’s bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera. Mahogany colour with concentrated aromas of dry figs and raisins. Smooth and rich on the palate, with a balanced acidity and a long aftertaste. Serve between 12-13ºC in a white wine glass. This wine is a perfect companion to light desserts and cakes, but can also be served with blue cheeses or just “on the rocks” with an orange slice.
Ganache, licorice root and warm treacle notes mingle here, picking up a buckwheat honey accent through the open-knit finish. Just firm enough to stay honest. Drink now. –JM 8/31/2014 (WS: 87)
Attractive caramel, apricot and peach aromas drive straight to a pure, creamy palate of cinnamon apple, mocha, coffee and chocolate. It’s quite smooth and balanced, and very long on the finish. Avoids all the pitfalls of sweet Sherry by maintaining its balance and mouthfeel. — M.S. (6/1/2009) (WE: 91)
