Each component of this wine (Oloroso and Pedro Xim nez) is aged independently in its own Solera. After blending, the result is a sweet wine. Mahogany in colour, with concentrated aromas of dried fruits, raisins and sultanas. A classic Cream Sherry: soft and sweet, complex and long on the palate, with a balanced and clean acidity to finish.

What is now Emilio Lustau SA was founded in 1896 by Don Jos? Ruiz-Berdejo. It was a modest beginning: Don Jos? cultivated the vines of his estate of Nuestra Se?ora de la Esperanza on the outskirts of Jerez de la Frontera, stored the wines in his vineyard house and later sold them to one of the big exporting bodegas. He was, in fact, an Almacenista. In the 1940s, his son-in-law Don Emilio Lustau Ortega moved the bodega to the ancient Santiago district in the heart of the old city. There, in buildings which formed part of the historic Moorish walls of the city, he expanded the business slowly, still retaining his role as an Almacenista. From the 1950s onwards the firm became Emilio Lustau SA, and its size enabled it to join the select group of exporters of Sherry. Later, from the early 1980s, Emilio Lustau SA, now under the management of the late Rafael Balao, became one of the most creative companies in Jerez.
