Professional Wine Reviews for Lustau Oloroso Sherry Anada Vintage 1997

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The Anada 1997 Rich Oloroso Abocado is produced with Palomino grapes from the Carrascal vineyard, aged for 13 years in American oak, and bottled in 2010. It is a rarity, both because is from a single harvest, and second because it is abocado, literally off-dry, but to me it's rather sweet, with its 170 grams of sugar. It displays a bright orange color with a sweet nose of orange blossom, candied oranges, honey and raisins. The dense palate is quite sweet, but manages to keeps the freshness, and the notes from the nose keep coming back. 14,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2013-2018.

Additional Information on Lustau Oloroso Sherry Anada Vintage 1997

Winery: Lustau

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
