“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)
This wine is produced employing methods meant to mimic the style of 17th century wines that faced transatlantic voyages to reach various Spanish colonies. During these long journeys, casks of Sherry would be used as ballast in the ships. Demand for these Sherries grew as wine drinkers around the world discovered that this process imparted distinct complexity and smoothness in the wines. Today, Lustau celebrates and acknowledges this important piece of Sherry heritage through the production of their East India Solera.
