Viticulture Outstanding for being a single-vineyard single vintage wine: it has been sourced from a selection of musts coming from grapes harvested in 2010 in the Pago Miraflores La Baja, in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, from one plot of 50+ year old vines, and a second plot of 80+ years old vines that have been used to source all the vintages of the La Bota de Florpower.
Winemaking Aged in Sherry butts and in barriques filled almost all the way up (a tocadedos) in order to avoid excessive oxidation. For this saca we have selected the contents of a few 225 litre arrels, sisters of the ones from where edition No.75 was withdrawn, which were showing outstanding balance and delicacy.
Oak Ageing Tasting Note La Bota de Palo Cortado 121 “Navazos” is the fourth release (the previous editions were numbered as 52, 75 and 102) of a ground breaking contribution to the concept of Palo Cortado in the Sherry District, and the result of decades of experience and reflection by Eduardo Ojeda and his team. This is a Palo Cortado that, despite its relative youth, honours the strict requirements of smoothness, purity, and complexity that every wine belonging to this noble category must meet. Fundamentally oxidative, with a very slight natural and almost inevitable exposure to biological ageing in the tanks. This wine boasts the typical minerality of the coastal vineyards in Sanlúcar. The 18% alcohol is moderate for the style and perfectly integrated and balanced, making for a very drinkable and refreshing wine, as well as being complex and long. A true delight … we cannot hide our enthusiasm for it!
