Equipo Navazos "La Bota de Manzanilla #55" Sanlucar de Barrameda

SKU #1263837 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The pungent and marine NV La Bota de Manzanilla 55 is one new bottling of a Manzanilla from seven years of aging under flor in the Barrio Bajo in Sanlúcar, from the Sánchez Ayala winery with a really pungent aroma, the character of this particular winery, really high acetaldehyde, a sub-product of the biological aging, for me a textbook, pungent Manzanilla, that won't please the drinker of light, over filtered, industrial Manzanillas. The palate is medium-bodied with very intense, sharp flavors. This is ready to be enjoyed now, but it will develop a different personality in bottle, which you might like or not. (LG)  (12/2014)

Jancis Robinson

 Wonderfully aromatic – positively piercing! Great smoky, bready finish. Really flies up the air. Beautifully creamy texture. So dry and appetising on the finish. Easy to see a relationship between this and long-aged champagne somehow. Long and creamy. A throat-caresser. 18/20 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. Taken from the same Sanlucar bodega as their past Manzanilla bottlings (and the same as their Amontillado bottlings), this is a lively, fresh, and complete, balanced Manzanilla. Packed with flavor and "en rama" richness. Bottled in November 2014.
