lustau oloroso don nuno
A rich concentrated wine which is classically dry with hints of sweetness, its amber gold colour and flavours of rich bitter chocolate and baked chestnuts leave an intense lingering aftertaste. This wine finds great appeal with the connoisseur and is appreciated by all oloroso lovers. As an apéritif or just as a digéstif. The more adventurous will try it with rich food. Serve at room temperature.
Opens with a wonderful set of nutty, dry aromas along with pit fruits like nectarine, apricot and peach. The palate is a cacaphony of toasty, peppery flavors sweetened by caramel and brown sugar. It has a fine feel and balance, and then finishing notes of browned butter and saut?ed mushroom. Delicious oloroso.

The NV Dry Oloroso Don Nuno is produced from Palomino grapes, fortified to 20%, and aged in American oak botas. Its heady, aromatic nose still has some fruity aromas from the grapes, intermixed with the noble woods, which comes through as a textbook, young Oloroso nose. The medium-bodied palate reveals very clean flavors of roasted nuts and a touch of brandy. It? a good entry-level Oloroso, with good quality to price ratio. Drink -.
Light red-brown. Big, nutty, roasted coffee nose. Nicely balanced, richer than the Emperatriz. Nice drinking. 87 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer
