Review

This is one of the country's best Manzanillas, made according to traditional methods. Aged under a veil of flor or film of yeast, the solera system is used, whereby tiers of casks (criaderas) are arranged so that the upper rows feed their younger wines to the older wines below.

The damp micro-climate and the maritime breezes around the mouth of the River Guadalquivir make Sanlúcar de Barrameda the land of Manzanilla, and give a distinctive character to this particular wine.

A pale straw colour, the nose carries aromas reminiscent of the sea breeze. Dry, light and fresh, with pungency and a clean palate, it shows great delcacy.

However there are also a number of subtle complexities with hints of almonds, lemon and chamomile that make this a slightly more mature, quality Manzanilla.

Recomendable manzanilla

Buen producto sanluqueño con la característica sequedad propia de su proceso en botas, con recuerdos salinos y afinados agradables, densidad justa y color bien dorado.

Höchstes Niveau!

Der Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa ist ein Paradebeispiel eines Manzanilla-Sherrys: nussig, salzig und frisch.Optimal (gut gekühlt, natürlich) als Aperitif und zu Meeresfrüchten. Macht wirklich Freude!

Emilio Lustau

The original company was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo, a wholesaler who grew vines on an estate that is still in the family, and sold his wines to the large exporting bodegas. Don Emilio Lustau Ortega, his son-in-law, established the bodega in 1940 in the old quarter of Jerez de la Frontera, from where the company has been exporting its wines since 1950. Over the next 40 years, there was considerable development, including new bodega facilities, until in 1990 the ...
