Wine of the Week #1520: Lustau Oloroso
Well for starters, we love this because Lustau is the platinum standard in the production of fine dry Sheries. This is a reference point for what dry Oloroso Sherry is supposed to taste like – rich aged flavours and aromas of hazelnut, brown butter, caramelized apple, raisin, wood smoke and more.
Wine of the Week #1514: Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904
“At this quality level the price is superb especially considering that the wine is being released 10 years after the vintage..” – 96/100 Points – Luis Gutierrez / eRobertParker.com
Wine of the Week #1513: Lustau Amontillado
“Every time new sherry (not the Canadian cream variety – get your mind out of the gutter) hits the LCBO, it’s like Christmas for bartenders and Spain-ophiles. This amber amontillado begins life as a fino and is elegantly oxidized as the flor, the protective blanket of yeast that sits on the surface of biologically aged sherry, dies off over the years. Bright and nutty (not to mention a total steal), Los Arcos is made for nibbles like nuts and dried fruit, cheese and cured meats. Serve cool and store in the fridge for up to two weeks.” (Now Magazine – Sarah Parniak)
