The Lustau Oloroso Almacenista 'Pata de Gallina' comes from an exclusive Solera that has only 38 casks. Aged in the charming bodega 'El Aljibe' in Jerez de la Frontera, 'Pata de Gallina' is the name for wines that display an above average richness and smoothness. Made from the Palomino grape, this Oloroso is dark gold in colour, with aromas of dried fruits and pipe tobacco. Very concentrated, with a powerful intensity on the palate and a slightly sweet finish, found in the oldest soleras of Oloroso Sherries. A very special wine. 

Emilio Lustau was established in 1896 and was initially a small family concern until the founder’s son-in-law placed it on a business footing.

The firm is perhaps best known as pioneering the Almacenista system, whereby individual dry sherries are produced from small private holdings. These are bottled under Lustau`s name but with the individual bodega's name on the label as well. Today they are amongst the most sought-out Sherries in the region.
