Lustau Spanish

The creator of this wine is Emilio Lustau, manager of Bodegas Lustau located in three locations in the Andalusian city of Cádiz: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

According to what they say from the winery itself, it is a wine “of a topaz color with coppery hues” that shows an extraordinary “Intensity on the nose, with aromas of nutmeg and spicy wood”. Also, the very description of the product indicates that “in the mouth it is slightly bitter, with hints of dark chocolate.”
