Equipo Navazos, Colet Navazos Extra Brut, DO Penedés, Spain, 2018
Equipo Navazos was born out of a group of friends passion to share the authentic, traditional wines of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Montilla … legitimately some of the greatest wines of the world!
These wines come from soleras and individual casks that remain, relatively neglected by the market in corners of many of Andalusia’s most prestigious bodegas. These unexpected yet fortunate findings have been made available to wine lovers around the world in limited quantities under the La Bota series (consecutively numbered editions, with the date of each saca or withdrawal date on the label)… in doing so respecting generations of expertise and care for these rare and beautiful wines. Today their efforts are increasingly focused on producing their own exceptional wines, such as Florpower, that truly express the character of Sanlúcar and its unique terroir. Outside of Andalusia, Equipo Navazos have collaborated with winemakers including Dirk Niepoort and Sergi Colet to develop authentic and individual wines that never fail to impress.
Colet Navazos Extra Brut are sparkling wines under the appellation Penedés produced according to the traditional (champenoise) method of secondary fermentation in bottle, starting with base wines sourced from Colet vineyards. The southern presence is felt in the secondary fermentation and especially in the use of different dosage wines. All of the fruit comes from certified organic vineyards.
Aged for 30 months on the lees before degorgement.
No oak ageing
Bone-dry, it has virtually no residual sugar, but still a refreshing sparkling wine. Rich, toasty and savoury, with a creamy mousse, a dry finish and lots of nutty, honey notes. With the added twist of saline from the ageing under flor yeast, and the addition of Palo Cortado and Amontillado which gives it a subtle complexity.
Charcuterie, smoked eel.
