Equipo Navazos, La Bota No 109, Amontillado 'Viejísimo de Trebujena Bota Punta', Montilla-Moriles, Spain (37.5cl.)
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.
“Saca de Octubre de 2021. One of the great satisfactions of the Equipo Navazos adventure, has been the opportunity to collaborate with exceptional people, such as those at the Albarizas de Trebujena Co-operative and bottle this incredible Amontillado. It reminds us of La Bota de Amontillado Viejísimo 5 “NPI”. First for its focused character, despite the tremendous concentration from great age. Second, the uncertainty about its origins. The co-operative was founded in 1977 but the wine is older, and it’s not entirely clear how it came to be at the winery, even the veterans are unsure. In our opinion, it shows a profile of the Guadalquivir area, with a style similar to that from Sanlucar.” Jesús Barquín, professor of criminology and founder of Equipo Navazos.
