Lustau

Lustau sweeps the board again in London

Four of the six trophies awarded by the IWC to wines from the Denomination of Origin "Jerez and Manzanilla" go to Lustau

The International Wine Challenge, the prestigious international wine competition held annually in London, has rediscovered Lustau’s Sherries.  Two months after having awarded Lustau no less than twenty five medals (ten of which were Golds), the IWC has announced the recipients of the Trophies (highest award possible) for the best wines in each category or region, in this case for Sherries and Manzanilla.

 

These results follow the lines of the medals announced in May, and Lustau has taken four of the six Trophies awarded to wines from the Denomination of Origin “Jerez-Xérès-Sherry”.  The Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa was awarded the Manzanilla Trophy, whilst the Lustau VORS Palo Cortado and Pedro Ximénez wines (true oenological jewels, with more than thirty years ageing) have each taken the Trophy for their style of Sherry.

 

A special mention must be made of the Fino La Ina, which has taken the Fino Trophy awarded by the IWC.  This emblematic wine of Jerez has taken three further Gold medals over the course of this year, (International Wine Challenge, International Wine & Spirit Competition -  also elected ”Best in Class”  -  and the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles).  During the three years that La Ina has been “tutored” by Lustau’s oenologist, Manuel Lozano, La Ina has accrued several awards, reflecting that this wine, the solera of which dates back to 1919, is enjoying one of its best moments.
