6 in stock



Roving Sommelier loves fortified wines, especially the iconic Sherries produced in Andalusia in Southern Spain. Here, there are three main towns that make up “The Sherry Triangle” where sherries are produced. This Moscatel – a fortified sweet dessert wine – is from Lustau’s vineyard “Las Cruces” in Chipiona, which is a small town, famous for its fine Moscatel wines. Aged for 8 years at their bodega in Jerez de la Frontera.

Iconic Sherry producer, Emilio Lustau first came onto my wine radar back in the day in the mid-1990s when I was working at Oxo Tower Restaurant in London. Being originally from Bristol, I have grown up with Sherry and I love all its different styles, tastes, and flavours, and especially Sherry’s wonderful food-friendliness. I have also visited the Sherry region many times over the years, and Lustau has become one of my all-time favourite bodegas.
