Amontillado V.O.R.S.

Amontillado V.O.R.S., Emilio Lustau

Lustau VORS (Very Old Rare Sherry) Amontillado has its origins in the searching and selecting process that Manuel Lozano, former Cellar Master of Lustau, made among the oldest solera casks of this wine. This Amontillado comes from a selection of 8 casks. Savory, almost saline, typical of the concentration found in the Amontillados of such long ageing.

• 100% Palomino • Average Age 30 years • Alcohol 21.5% • Residual Sugar 8 g/L • Total Acidity 11.17 g/L

"The VORS certification (Very Old Rare Sherry) implies not only the age of the wine, but also its quality—both of which are evident in this Amontillado. Selected by capataz Manuel Lozano from among the oldest wines Lustau tends in the city of Jerez, some of them more than 30 years old, this is a radical wine, not recommended for sensitive souls. Only salt and iodine notes fill the flavor, intense minerality emanating throughout the wine with the power of a volcano erupting. Rustic in texture, generous in body and deep in marine flavors, it’s breathtaking."
