Lustau 2022 En Rama Fino El Puerto Sherry
Lustau's “3 En Rama” range comprises a Fino, from Jerez de la Frontera, another Fino from El Puerto de Santa María and a Manzanilla from Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Cellar Master Sergio Martínez carefully selects the most outstanding casks from every single Solera to create this exclusive range. To obtain the purest Sherry, Lustau brings back the “En Rama” style, which means bottling the wine straight from the cask with no additional treatment. This process usually takes place in spring, when the layer of living yeast, known as “flor” reaches its zenith. Thus, Sherry’s natural character is fully maintained and the resulting wine is one of great personality, influenced by the microclimate of the town in which it is aged.
The coastal town of El Puerto de Santa María enjoys mild weather all the year round. This has a crucial influence on briny and light Finos aged therein since the “flor” grows in ideal environmental conditions.
