Fino De Jerez En Rama Sherry Spring 2021 Release 500ml
Founded in 1896, Lustau has been a standard bearer for Sherry for more than a century. For more than the last few decades, it has been applying a boutique concept to its winemaking, building up a selection of some thirty wines from its own Soleras and others chosen from the stocks of the small Almacenista producers, independent Sherry artisans. These are aged in all three of the cities of the Sherry area: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Now Lustau has taken this quality approach a step further, releasing two Finos and a Manzanilla all En Rama. “En Rama” means “from the branch”, the idea being that this is Sherry in its rawest and most natural form, straight from the barrel with no filtering or fining. For us, this is the finest way to drink Sherry.
Lustau’s Fino De Jerez En Rama Sherry Spring 2021 Release was matured in Jerez de la Frontera. The hot summers and damp winters create a rounder and fuller style of Fino Sherry. Having spent four years ageing beneath the flor (the yeast growth that gives Fino its distinctive flavour) in American oak casks, it is bottled without filtering, fining or treatment of any kind.
This precious wine shines like a gold bar. On the nose, Fino De Jerez En Rama is intensely yeasty, like freshly baked white sourdough bread slathered in butter. Bone dry on the palate, with notes of chalk, salt, pebbles and nutty, oily Marcona almonds on the finish, it makes a stunning accompaniment to tapas, cured meats, salty cheeses, steak tartar, yakitori, tortilla, muhammara or chorizo. But we also recommend tasting it side by side with the other two wines in the range, just to experience the Sherry terroir of this collection.
