Equipo Navazos La Bota de Fino "Macharnudo #54" Jerez

SKU #1263829 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Superb within its class, the NV La Bota de Fino Macharnudo Alto is sourced from the Inocente solera from Valdespino, a barrel-fermented, 10 year under flor Fino from the Macharnudo Alto vineyard, one of the most famous in Jerez, bottled unfiltered from a selection of butts from the Inocente solera of Valdespino, a Fino averaging 10 years of age under flor when bottled, with a strong flor character. It has a powerful nose of esparto grass, dried herbs, iodine, brine and almonds. The palate is medium to full-bodied with great power and concentration. This can be drunk now but has everything to age in bottle. (LG)  (12/2014)

 Really intense and powerful on the nose with strong rancio influence. Much more concentrated than the much younger En Rama version. Really gets the saliva flowing! Great intensity and with a smoky finish. Hint of oyster shells. 17.5/20 points (JR)  (2/2016)

K&L Notes

The original independent bottlers of Sherry "por excelencia," Equipo Navazos continues to produce the Sherries that generate the most buzz, the loudest "oohs" and "ahh's" from both serious Sherry drinkers and other types of wine geeks alike. As ever, the Fino is a selection from Valdespino. It is a blend of the oldest wines (or portions of the "solera" barrels) along with wine from the slightly younger second criadera. So we are dealing with a very complex, complete, relatively older Fino (10 years average age) that is bottled "en rama."
