Despite its strength, its concentration and its immense flavours of smoky wood, prunes and bitter chocolate, this fine rare wine is smooth and warming leaving a clean, lightly acid lingering aftertaste. Awarded Gold Medal and Sherry Trophy at IWC 2005. Drink it as an apéritif. Serve at cool room temperature. www.emilio-lustau.com

The non-vintage Oloroso de Jerez “Emperatriz Eugenia” ratchets up the intensity. Because it is relatively dry, it is also a good match with savory foods.
