Looking for something different to serve your guests? We recently “discovered” Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa Sanlúcar de Barrameda and loved how this extra dry sherry paired with “tapas” making it perfect for easy holiday or anytime entertaining. While new to us, Bodegas Lustau was founded in Spain in 1896 where they continue the tradition of crafting world-class, award-winning sherry expressions. Salud!

Tasting Notes: The color is pale straw, and on the palate, it is crisp and very dry with floral, green apples, slate, and mineral notes making it a perfect companion for “tapas,” sushi, and sashimi.

We paired it with a variety of tapas and found it was delectable with Marcona almonds with rosemary, as well as with Castelvetrano olives, homemade Gorgonzola Dried Cranberry Crisps, and creamy peanut butter stuffed dates wrapped with prosciutto.

The pairing of the stuffed dates worked especially well with the sweetness of the dates, the creamy peanut butter, and the slight saltiness of the prosciutto that complemented the very dry Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa. The slightly bitter olives also worked nicely with the sherry, as did the Gorgonzola Dried Cranberry Crisps. Together they made for a very delicious and easy pairing of sherry and food.

Luxury Experience - Tapas with Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa

Luxury Experience Pairing Menu with Gorgonzola Dried Cranberry Crisps, Peanut Butter Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto, Marcona Almonds with Rosemary, and Castelvetrano Olives

Luxury Experience – Gorgonzola Dried Cranberry Crisps


Salted Butter
Dried Cranberries
Black Pepper

Method: Cream butter in standing mixer or food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until the mixture comes together in a ball. Roll the dough into 2-log shapes, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Chill in refrigerator until firm.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Thinly slice the logs into medallions, then cut with round cookie cutter for a professional finish. Place medallions on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake until crisp but not brown.

Luxury Experience – Peanut Butter Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto

Method: This is a super easy and very tasty tapas. Add a teaspoon of Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa to creamy peanut butter to thin it out a bit. Using a piping bag, pipe the peanut butter into pitted dates. Slice prosciutto into long strips and wrap around the dates.

About Bodegas Lustau

“The origins of Emilio Lustau S.A. date back to 1896, when Mr. José Ruiz-Berdejo, a secretary to the Court of Justice, started cultivating the vines of the family’s state, named Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, in his spare time. In these humble beginnings he made wines which were then sold on to larger Sherry producers. This activity was known as being an almacenista or stockeeper.

In 1931, his daughter, María Ruiz-Berdejo Alberti, acquired a small winery closer to the centre of Jerez de la Frontera and moved there all the preexisting soleras, gaining notoriety and visibility. Today, Bodegas Lustau is considered a world-class benchmark for top-quality wines. Lustau has recently been awarded with multiple medals and trophies, being the most important Best Spanish Winery in 2011 and Best Sherry Producer in 2014 and 2016 awarded by the International Wine & Spirit Competition. Lustau has also been awarded two consecutive times (first winery in history) the Len Evans Trophy to consistency in 2011 y 2016 by the International Wine Challenge.”
