Lustau Almacenista Palo Cortado NV - January 2019 Decanter review
Almacenistas are independent professionals or entrepreneurs who have been historically producing and ageing Sherry. The love and care of the Almacenista for their activity is shown in their limited soleras of the finest and rarest sherries. These soleras are still operated by the original artisanal methods. Lustau was founded in 1896 by an Almacenista itself and has wanted to pay a tribute to this anonymous role in the Sherry trade by creating this very special range of Sherries.

Lustau Almacenista Palo Cortado - fiche technique
Bright gold in colour with amber reflections. A delicate yet pungent nose, with nutty aromas. Velvety and smooth on the palate. Its endless length has a comforting bitterness that leaves the palate refreshed and ready for more.
