There are many other good sherry houses, and there are both larger and more selling sherry houses. But – as the competitors also say – it’s Lustau’s quality, everyone is looking to do! The company, founded in 1896, was acquired in 1990 by the Vinfirmaet Luis Caballero SA, which both brought a large bag of money and optimally located fields for the production of Topsherry. The house’s largest investment is undoubtedly the acquisition of Bodega Los Arcos in 2002. Los Arcos actually consists of six small separate bodegas, so you can store the individual product types, not only separately, but also in reasonable amounts. It is important to keep the individual products separately, as it eg. are bacteria in the air that gives each sherry its individual style. The grapes are separated and pressed, after which the acid content is adjusted with tartaric acid. The must be joined in large steel tanks and is upgraded with grape prit to hedding strength (15-15.5%). The wine is placed on large fade, which is not completely filled, whereby it is constantly in contact with air. Normally, the wine would be converted into acetic acid, but under these special conditions, a protective skin is formed by foam, called Flor. After this treatment, Sherry often includes as part of a sole system: This system takes place as follows: You take 1/6 part of a 10 year old wine and mix up in a one year old wine. Then, there are equivalent 1/6 part of a 9 year old wine in and complements the 6 year old dish and and then still with an 8-year, 7-year-old and 6-year-old. This causes the young wines faster taking character of an old wine. Lustau has in recent years won many prices for its quality, not least the title as “Best Spanish Bodega”. Many of the prices have gone to Lustau’s own wines, but some have also gone to the house famous Almacenista-Sherrys. Small, individual wine growers sell their, often very nu cancers, wine for Lustau. Where all other sherry houses blend Almacenistan’s wine in the house’s own, Lustau is the only house that lets Almacenista wines decay separately. Whatever Lustau-Sherry, you choose as the first acquaintance, you are not in doubt about why Lustau is the area’s lead star and “trendsetter” in the rest of the world!
