Dark mahogany in colour with green-amber edge. It offers vibrant notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, shoe polish, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, all very well integrated. On the palate it is smooth and rich at the beginning, full of prune and burned oranges peel flavours. Provocative spicy notes appear just before its nuttiness and terrific acidity cuts through the sweetness. A truly unforgettable finish. Pairing: This wine is a perfect companion to light desserts and cakes, but can also be served with creamy cheeses or foie-gras. Try it also on the rocks with a slice of orange, simply delicious.

Wine EnthusiastThis traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It's dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It's not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn't syrupy. But it's certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, maple and brown sugar flavors. For anyone who likes a sweet Sherry that's balanced, this is a good place to go.

Wine SpectatorSweet and lush, with inviting rum raisin, toffee and Christmas pudding notes, all relatively fresh and gentle in feel. Stays light-footed in the end. Drink now. 4,500 cases made.
