Importer Note:


The eighth release of La Bota de Manzanilla and unlike previous editions originates from the vineyards of Las Cañas and La Soledad. It was matured in 600-litre oak butts (casks) under flor for some seven years in the winery of Sánchez Ayala in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Jesús Barquín has compared this release of La Bota de Manzanilla with the La Bota No.8 release (which is high praise of course). It's wildly aromatic, with an ethereal yet complex and glycerol rich personality across the palate with a long, dry, saline close. Bloody marvellous. 


"I previewed the NV La Bota de Manzanilla 71, which will be bottled in the summer, a blend of wines from the vineyards Las Cañas (Pago Balbaína - Las Tablas) and La Soledad (Pago El Cuadro); it matured in 600-liter oak butts (casks) with flor for some seven years in the winery of Sánchez Ayala in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This is a very biological Manzanilla, with strong marine aromas and a sharp palate. It feels like a lighter and more aromatic version of La Bota de Manzanilla; it is more civilized and less wild. But the acetaldehyde character is quite distinct here, especially as I tasted an unbottled sample, but I expect the finished wine to be quite close to what I tasted. They expect to produce around 5,000 bottles of this wine." 91-93 points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate #224

Winery Note:

Through the wines bottled in the series “La Bota”, Equipo Navazos give wine lovers from all around the world the chance of accessing to a range of complex, fine and authentic traditional wines that legitimately belong among the greatest wines of the world. These wines come from soleras and individual casks that remain, relatively neglected by the market in the last few decades, in the bodegas of some of the most prestigious producers. Some of them are unexpected but fortunate findings, testimony of the anonymous work of generations of wine men and wine women, others are the result of a long-standing collaboration between Equipo Navazos and some winemakers in Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Montilla and El Puerto de Santa María, with whom we are honoured to work together.

Beyond the series "La Bota", Equipo Navazos also work together with some producers and winemakers, not only from Andalusia but also from other regions in and abroad Spain, in the making of singular wines (and a couple brandies), always with an obsession for authenticity and personality: Casa del Inca, Navazos-Niepoort, I Think, Colet-Navazos, OVNI, Navazos-Palazzi are some of these products. By means of these initiatives, our main goal is to personally enjoy drinking our favourite wines, and hopefully make other wine lovers enjoy them as much as we do. No much more or less than this, however we are aware that it will always be quite a challenge...
