In centuries gone by, casks of sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies as ballast, and were found to develop an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style of sherry in the East India wine. Unforgettable flavours of raisins, candied peel and nuts.

Wine AdvocateReaders looking for something weighty, sweet, and provocative should check out the non-vintage East India Solera. A blend of soleras averaging 15 to 50 years of age, it boasts a dark amber color as well as a huge nose of melted toffee, caramel, figs, and prunes. This over-the-top yet surprisingly vibrant (because of good acidity) effort is best drunk as dessert at the end of a meal.

Wine SpectatorRich and concentrated with coffee and caramel flavors in a balanced presentation. Picks up a grilled nut accent on the finish. Solid and complex, but not cloying.

International Wine CellarDeep mahogany color. Pure, distinctly dried-fruit (figs and dates) nose. A luscious, decidedly sweet, but balanced dessert wine with coffee, chocolate, date and apricot flavors. 90 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer
