Characteristics of Lustau 3 en Rama Fino de El Puerto de Santa María
Lustau 3 en Rama Fino de El Puerto de Santa María is a fino sherry produced by Bodegas Lustau in Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz.
Lustau was founded in 1896, evolving throughout the years, and is now home to three wineries in the cities of Marco de Jerez, Jerez de la Frontera, Puerto de Santa María and Sanlucar de Barrameda. Lustau is the first and only company to be able to offer a range of 3 “en Rama” Finos and Manzanilla Sherries, one from each of the 3 cities in the Sherry triangle, with the aim of highlighting the typical characteristics of each zone and vintage.
Lustau 3 en Rama Fino de El Puerto de Santa María is made exclusively with the Palomino Fino grape variety and is aged via the solera system. The wine is selected from two boots of a total of 347, the most refined and elegant being selected. The wine is neither stabilised nor filtered before being bottled, coming straight from the cask (hence the term ‘en rama’), preserving its qualities.
This fino is perhaps the most opulent of the collection. It perfectly defines the character of Porteño where the sea breezes come and offer a small saline touch
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.
Lustau is considered today as the world's leading winery when it comes to top-quality sherry wines. The way they combine tradition with modernity and creativity, with constant search for quality of its wines, have accompanied them from its modest beginnings as stock keepers. Their several awards and mentions, both national and international, throughout its history, consolidate their leadership in the category of Sherry wines. Nowadays, they offer the consumer the widest range and highest quality in all market segments.
