Lustau Almacenista Manzanilla Pasada de Sanlucar Cuevas Jurado
Region: Sherry
Winery: Emilio Lustau
Label   Shelf Talker   Fact Sheet

Description: Aged for seven years in an 80-bota solera, this subtle, elegant Manzanilla Pasada displays the impressive consistency and quality of the Manuel Cuevas wines. Its briny mineral flavors meld with scents of hazelnuts in a wine that feels comfortably balanced despite its power. A Manzanilla of clarity and purity. For sea urchin.

Wine Spectator 92 "Salted plantain chip, chamomile, Meyer lemon, blanched almond and talc notes are tightly woven, with a floral-tinged finish that has rapier cut. Drink now. 200 cases made." Web Only 2013
Decanter Magazine 92 Silver Medal Decanter Wine World Awards 2016
Savoury but intense, with a faint smoky air over the top of aromas of brown bread, seaweed and nuts. The palate is crisp yet full-bodied, displaying delicate flavours of lemon peel, salted almonds and a long firm finish.
