Syrupy-sweet and full of raisin flavour, the Pedro Ximénez grapes are literally raisined by laying on straw mats in the sun for several days. Deep, rich and complex this is delicious with dark fruitcakes, chocolate desserts or - don't tell any wine snobs - simply poured over ice cream.

Overview

Grape

Pedro Ximinez

Its Origins

Bodegas Lustau was founded in 1896 by Mr. José Ruiz-Berdejo. His son-in-law Emilio Lustau Ortega moved the winery to the old neighbourhood of Santiago, in the historic quarter of Jerez de la Frontera. There, in buildings that formed part of the historic Moorish walls of the city, he slowly began to expand the business, still as a vintner. In 1950, the company began exporting its own wines from Jerez. Lustau's Pedro Ximénez grapes are laid out in the sun for several days to raisin. Fermentation is stopped, in order to keep the natural sugar of the grapes. Afterwards this wine is fortified and then aged in the “solera and criaderas” system. Dark mahogany in colour and viscous. Redolent of ripe fruit in the mouth, dried figs and roasted coffee beans. Very sweet, velvety and soft in the mouth, with an extremely long aftertaste.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Wine Advocate, Luis Gutierrez

"The NV Moscatel Superior Emilin, produced from Moscatel grapes sourced from Las Cruces vineyard in Chipiona, basically the only place that still grows Moscatel grapes, which has very sandy soil. Legend is that there are some pre-phyloxera vines there... This wine is also quite dark for its age, and has the telltale Moscatel profile of candied orange, honeysuckle and sweet Muscat grapy notes. They do not dehydrate the grapes, they wait and harvest them very late, with some overripeness. With some time it surprises me because it ends up smelling of cola sweets. Drink 2013-2020."
