Macharnudo Alto Equipo Navazos

Origin Spain, Sherry
ABV 15%

The NV La Bota de Fino 91 Macharnudo Alto is a wine that has been bottled multiple times under the numbers 2, 7, 15, 18, 27, 35, 54 and 68 from the Fino Inocente solera of Valdespino. The bottled wine averages an age of ten years, a full-bodied Fino (if that's possible after ten years of flor!), fermented in old sherry casks like it was done yesteryear. They had not bottled this wine for almost three years. The nose is spectacular and easy to identify; it has the same character as the Inocente wines. The nose was singing and expressive, with typical aromas but also somehow floral and perfumed. It has volume with lots of autolysis from the lees, with great power but also finesse and balance. Stunning. 5,000 bottles produced. Drinking range: 2019 - 2024 Rating: 95 Luis Gutierrez, (Nov 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Casks with a fresher profile chosen because 68 was more mature and they wanted to go back to a slightly fresher style, less uncompromisng. Bottled February 2019. A combination of solera and 1st and 2nd criadera. 10 years average age. From Innocente solera as usual. Surprisingly deeply coloured, pale gold. Super-intense aroma that is salty, bready and full of dried grasses and chamomile but also has some wild tangy yellow fruit that gives intensity and depth on the palate, creamy richness from the autolysis. So incredibly saline. Revved-up Fino but still elegant. Intensely mouth-watering and cries out for food. Long and precise. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 Rating: 18 Julia Harding MW, 2019)
