Equipo Navazos, Colet Navazos Reserva Extra Brut, DO Penedés, Spain, 2013

Equipo Navazos, Colet Navazos Reserva Extra Brut, DO Penedés, Spain, 2013

Producer Profile

Equipo Navazos is a group of friends who have united over a shared passion for the treasures of Jerez, Sanlúcar, El Puerto and Montilla.

Working with local producers to identify high quality butts of sherry with finesse and complexity which they then bottle and offer in very limited amounts. As well as producing sherry, Equipo Navazos has collaborated with other winemakers including Dirk Niepoort and Sergi Colet to develop some intriguing and characterful wines from Jerez and sparkling wines from Penèdes.

Viticulture

All of the Chardonnay fruit for the Colet Navazos Reserva Extra Brut comes from certified organic vineyards.

Winemaking

Colet and Equipo Navazos have experimented with other parameters, as in the game of combining small amounts of flor yeasts and/or lees for the second fermentation of Penedés sparkling wines. Aged under flor for 41 months and given a sherry dosage at bottling. This wine has virtually no residual sugar and no sulfites have been added in the degorging.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Bone-dry, the nose is seductive and delicate, defined by white fruit jams, and ripe stone fruits. The creamy mousse envelop the palate of apricots and ripe oranges.
