Equipo Navazos, La Bota 110 Manzanilla Pasada "Capataz Cabo", Jerez, Spain
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.
The white chalky soil of the Jerez area, 'albariza,' is ideal for the cultivation of Palamino grapes which produce the sherry for which Jerez is so well known.
A new release of Manzanilla Pasada from the very special small solera of just 13 barrels at the old cellars of Hijos de Sancho Marin Perez. This solera, or more accurately a selection of barrels from it, has been the source of every release of Manzanilla Pasada from Equipo Navazos originating with No 10 (that Jancis Robinson scored 20/20) to the most recent release La Bota 90, which received 96/97 from Luis Gutierrez: "This is nuttier than the regular Manzanilla and even nuttier than the majority of Manzanilla Pasada, keeping the saline and marine character, hints of iodine and low tide, but also something floral and ethereal. The palate is super expressive and explosive, pungent and nuanced, with very pure and long-lasting flavours. This is truly impressive… a monumental wine. 3,000 bottles produced."
A versatile wine, from everyday rice dishes, fish and charcuterie, through to scrambled eggs and truffles, soft sheep cheeses, Asian and spicy dishes.
