EQUIPO NAVAZOS #56 Pedro Ximenez Viejisimo Bota 15%
Sherry, Spain / Andalusia, 37.5cl, Ref: 5637
Pedro Ximenez and Palomino are the two key grape varieties that make up Jerez and Montilla-Moriles wines. Whilst those produced from Palomino for the manzanillas are generally dry, almost marine, those produced from Pedro Ximenez are far creamier, sometimes even syrupy. This Bota no.56, which has been caskaged over a very long time, has maintained remarkable freshness and smoothness.
Profile: opulent, warm. Candied notes of exotic fruits (mango, persimmon) and fine spices (cardamom, cumin)
- Appearance : vibrant orangey copper
- Nose : rich, opulent. The initial nose is marked by dried fruit (fig, date, walnut) and very fresh notes of balsamic vinegar. Develops into black fruits (blackberry, blueberry) and sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger). Once aerated, its autumnal character (dead leaves, wilted roses) adds a poetic dimension.
- Palate : warm, heady. The attack on the palate has a very fine grain to it. With candied notes of exotic fruits (mango, persimmon) and fine spicy (cardamom, cumin) notes of heady florals (lily, iris), the mid-palate becomes increasingly concentrated. Flavours of gingerbread and toasted walnuts feed an indulgent end of the palate.
- Overall : long, silky. Endowed with a chocolatey bitterness and underpinned by an invigorating acidity. A few grains of salt gradually cover currants, greengage plums and candied citrus fruit (orange). Lingers with roasted notes (coffee, tobacco). The retro-nasal olfaction highlights the quality of its wood and the freshness of the aromatic and gustatory palette. The empty glass allows dried fruit (fig, cashew nut) and spices (star anise, cinnamon) to take the upper hand.
- The brand
Three men, Jesus Barquin, Edouardo Ojeda and Alvaro Giron, united in their passion for Andalucia’s wines, are instigated the La Bota project. The project began in December 2005, when, while visiting a very old bodega, they discovered several dozen ‘butts’ of Amontillado sherry that had been undisturbed for more than 20 years. They selected a small quantity and bottled it under the name La Bota de Amontillado Navazos. Initially they only offered it to friends and a small group of sherry enthusiasts. Such was their success that they formed the ‘Equipo Navazos’, and have since released thirty small bottlings. Every one is a masterpiece.
