| FINO DE JEREZ EN RAMAEmilio Lustau S.A., founded in 1896, is considered one of the most prestigious Sherry producers. In line with Lustau’s “boutique” philosophy of selecting small batches of very rare Sherries, the “En Rama” range offers biologically aged wines from each of the 3 towns of the Sherry triangle: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
The inland climate in the city of Jerez de la Frontera, with its long hot summers and mild but wet winters, is an important influence in the development of the Finos aged in this area, giving a more rounded and fuller style of wine.
This Fino from Jerez is aged in our Bodega Los Arcos, built in 1862 and located in the centre of the town. Only one cask of Fino Jarana from the original Solera of 708 has been set aside by our Capataz Manuel Lozano to be bottled, chosen for its finesse. Drawn from the butt and bottled without any additional treatment, Fino de Jerez en Rama has a pale gold colour and soft, balsamic aromas, with notes of resin and bitter oranges. It is full bodied and elegant on the palate, with a tangy finish.
FINO DEL PUERTO EN RAMA
The coastal town of El Puerto de Santa María enjoys mild weather all year round. This has a crucial influence on Finos aged there since the “Flor” grows in ideal environmentally stable conditions.
This Fino from El Puerto is aged in our Bodega del Drago, located less than a mile from the “La Puntilla” beach. Only one cask from a Solera of 347 has been set aside by our Capataz Manuel Lozano to be bottled, chosen for its delicacy. Drawn from the butt and bottled without any treatment, Fino del Puerto en Rama is a pale gold colour with bright yellow reflections. Its yeasty “Flor” aromas join with scents of roasted almonds and pungent smoked wood. The wine has a very complex, mineral palate with an appealing acidity on the finish.
MANZANILLA EN RAMA
The microclimate in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, which sits on the estuary of the river Guadalquivir, with Atlantic breezes coming off the ocean, impregnates the yeast growing on the surface of the Manzanilla with a rare sea salt character.
This Manzanilla from Sanlúcar is aged in a Bodega facing “La Calzada” beach, on the river bank. Only one cask from a Solera of 135 has been set aside by our Capataz Manuel Lozano to be bottled, chosen for its delicate and rare characteristics. Drawn from the butt and bottled without any further treatment, Manzanilla de Sanlúcar en Rama shows an elegant straw colour with golden hints. It has bakery and camomile aromas and a mineral background. On the palate it is deliciously long, crisp and almost saline
