LA BOTA NO 115
Fino Equipo Navazos
Bottled a few days ago. From the Machurnado vineyard. They have decreased the average age by a couple of years so it’s seven or eight years on average and the wine is more refreshing and not so uncomfortably concentrated. Firmer and nuttier than I Think Manzanilla with real tang and bite. Hint of molten dry treacle. Real grip. Neat and convincing. Not yet open – needs a couple of months.

The NV La Bota de Fino 115 is still 100% from Macharnudo Alto, and they are trying to make a slightly more fluid wine, not like a Fino Amontillado, which was the case with some bottlings coming from the selection of very old soleras. It's slightly different from the previous edition, number 91; this is slightly younger, between seven and eight years of age, but it keeps the same style, just a little more approachable. It's still an old Fino, with notes of esparto grass and volume in the palate. 6,000 bottles produced. This was bottled in August 2022 in 0.75-liter bottles.
