Lustau Oloroso VORS 30 years
Este Olororo VORS, siglas de Very Old Rare Sherry, es una creación del anterior enólogo de Lustau, Manuel Lozano, quien realizó una labor de selección entre las soleras más viejas de este vino. El resultado es fruto de un soleraje de nueve botas en las que el vino ha permanecido 30 años, aportando una brillante profundidad y concentración. Se presenta en formato de 50 cl.
Opinión de los críticos
This has a very complex nose with dried apricots, mahogany, grilled almonds and a very fresh, pure and precisely struck rancio thread. Spiced-biscuit and praline flavors run long with a super fine, elegant and layered feel, it builds long and bright on the finish with a very fresh wash of salty, acid tang to close. Superb. Drink now.
The NV Oloroso VORS, produced with Palomino grapes and aged in a solera system for an average of 30 years shows a bright dark amber color. It starts with some reductive notes, which might seem like a contradiction for a wine that has aged oxidatively for such a long time, but it all depends on how long the wine has been in bottle. If this happens to you, with this or any other old Sherry, you only need to give it plenty of air. I know it’s not very convenient, but once the producer has gone through the trouble of aging the wine for such a long time and you go through the expense of purchasing one of this bottles, you might as well wait one day rather than using it for cooking or pouring it down the drain. Anyway, once it blows away, the bright orange-colored wine reveals a pleasant nose of toffee, ash, chestnuts, honey and orange marmalade. The palate is intense, with flavors of cedar wood and spiced nuts, ending slightly salty. Drink 2013-2018.
Dark treacle and date aromatics. Concentrated with a rich, rounded mouth feel and full-bodied with extremely well-integrated alcohol and a long, complex finish.
