Characteristics East India Solera

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

One of the great icons of Bodegas Lustau was created from a combination of the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez, which after long aging, were then aged togetherfor at least three years in special 33 American oak casks.

East India Solera was thus treated, a creamy, sweet yet moderate wine containing 140 grams of residual sugar. Aging in the wettest and warmest part of the winery, the wine encourages you to remember naval voyages to the former Spanish colonies in the Indian Ocean during the seventeenth century. The end result is not indifferent.

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.
