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