Lustau Sherry Moscatel Solera Familiar Emilin

Lustau Sherry Moscatel Solera Familiar Emilin

Sku: 011829

Produced with 100% muscatel grapes from the Las Cruces vineyard in Chipiona and aged in American oak barrels. Very deep colour. Intense floral bouquet. Reminiscent of figs, raisins and walnuts. Full-bodied flavour that lingers on the palate. Very sweet though balanced owing to its natural acidity. This muscatel is one of Lustau’s winningest wines.

Tasting notes
Moscatel is the name of the grape that produces this wonderfully balanced dessert wine from Lustau. The wine is golden-brown in color with a slight green tint around the edge. The green is indicative of the wonderful, fresh acidity that gives this wine balance. Orange rind and dried fruits can be detected on the nose. Oranges, peaches, figs, dates and burnt sugar are on the palate. While sweet, this remarkable wine is balanced enough to drink with desserts such as chocolate-covered figs, bread pudding or panna cotta. Breathtakingly delicious!

The NV Moscatel Superior Emilin, produced from Moscatel grapes sourced from Las Cruces vineyard in Chipiona, basically the only place that still grows Moscatel grapes, which has very sandy soil. Legend is that there are some pre-phyloxera vines there... This wine is also quite dark for its age, and has the telltale Moscatel profile of candied orange, honeysuckle and sweet Muscat grapy notes. They do not dehydrate the grapes, they wait and harvest them very late, with some overripeness. With some time it surprises me because it ends up smelling of cola sweets. Drink 2013-2020.
