Equipo Navazos, La Bota No 93, Manzanilla 'Navazos', Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain

Producer Profile

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.

Viticulture

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.

Winemaking

This is the ninth release of La Bota de Manzanilla 'Navazos', all of them with a pure Sanlúcar character, and this one sourced from the same soleras as No.71, in order to enhance the authenticity of the original style of the manzanilla. It comes from a selection among several dozens of toneles and botas of excellent quality, casks that have been carefully put aside and looked after by Eduardo Ojeda and his team for more than twelve years since they arrived in Sanlúcar in January 2007. The estimated average age of this manzanilla is seven years old.

Oak Ageing

Tasting Note

Showing a well settled and profound profile as well as salty and cheerful vibrancy, La Bota de Manzanilla No.93 'Navazos' is an unbeatable match on the dinner table. It has been bottled after only the slightest filtration in order to preserve its genuine character and its deep golden colour with green hues as if straight from the butt.

Food Matching

It excels with dishes from the Spanish seafood tradition: mackerel potatoes, tuna stew, oven preparations and boiled shellfish; and international cuisine: toro sashimi, marinated herrings, mussels.
