Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Lustau VORS Palo Cortado is a wine produced by Bodegas Lustau located in Jeréz de la Frontera, D.O. Jerez-Xerés -Sherry.

 

Bodegas Lustau , founded by José Ruiz-Berdejo i Veyan in 1896, has evolved from its beginnings as a stock keeper. Nowadays, they have 3 wineries in the different cities of the Sherry Triangle, Jeréz de la Frontera, Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

Bodegas Lustau has two vineyards in the Sherry Triangle, Viña Montegilillo, with white clay soils (albariza), very appropriate for the cultivation of Palomino. From this variety they obtains the musts for the production of manzanilla, fino, amontillado and oloroso wines. And Viña Las Cruces, near the coast, with sandy soils where they cultivate Muscatel and Pedro Ximénez, which they use for the production of sweet wines.

Bodegas Lustau makes a range of VORS (Very Old Rare Sherry), sherry wines that are qualified and certified by the Sherry Wine Regulatory Board, which guarantees that they have aged for at least 30 years. They are subjected to a strict selection that gives rise to only one thousand bottles of 50 centilitres each.

 

Lustau VORS Palo Cortado is a wine made from Palomino Fino. It is selected from the oldest "soleras", of over 30 years. This Palo Cortado has been chosen among the best fortified wines that show enough finesse to be destined to a biological ageing. The foreman is in charge of marking the butt, crossing the stick (palo) with another horizontal stroke. Once it has performed the biological ageing (velo en flor), it is fortified once again until it reaches 17.5% vol. Then, it goes through oxidative ageing.

 

Lustau VORS Palo Cortado is a vine with a biological and oxidative ageing. Penetrating and dry. On the nose, the aromas of pecan nut and spiced wood stand out. In the mouth, it is slightly bitter, with nuances of dark chocolate, and a very long finish.

Pictures and situation Lustau
Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
