Lustau Moscatel Emilín
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla|
International Wine Cellar
Reddish-brown. Orange peel and dried fruit nose. Oranges, peaches, figs, dates and burnt sugar on the palate. Rich, complex and exotic. A great example of its type. 94 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer
Dark brown in color, with sweet aromas of candied fruit, brown sugar and mocha. The palate is lively and warm, with zesty yet baked flavors of toffee, caramel and apricot. A little fiery and driving on the finish, with a lasting spice note. Excellent for an aged, dark-style Moscatel.
This avoids the slightly cloying edge found in most Moscatel Sherries, with bright green tea and ginger notes adding lift and freshness to the rum-soaked raisin, tiramisu and fig flavors. Drink now.
