Overview of the Wine
The origins of The House of Lustau date back to 1896, when Mr. José Ruiz-Berdejo, started cultivating the vines of the family’s estate in his spare time. In these humble beginnings he made wines which were then sold to larger sherry producers. This activity was known as being an almacenista. Lustau is nowadays considered a world-class benchmark for top – quality wines. Lustau has repeatedly been awarded with multiple awards and trophies from around the world. These accolades have been achieved by our products and our team, both considered best of the industry. The day-to-day work and the wisdom transmitted from generation to generation of craftsmen, come together in the care of our casks.
More than 125 years of history and expertise combined with our team’s passion and dedication shape the character and personality of our wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Dark gold in colour, with aromas of dried fruits and pipe tobacco. Very concentrated, with a powerful intensity on the palate and a slightly sweet finish, found in the oldest soleras of Oloroso sherries.
91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The non-vintage Oloroso Pata de Gallina, Almacenista Garcia Jarana, also a dark amber, offers smoke, earth, and almonds. It would also make a fine match with game.
91 Points - Wine Spectator
Offers a raisiny hint, along with notes of date, anise, fennel seed, cardamom and singed clove. There's an ever so slightly sweet feel through the nicely wiry finish, tinged with orange bitters. Drink now.
91 Points - Decanter
Warm, nutty caramel with a touch of bitter orange peel; grippy, dry and spicy with a long, citrus finish
