The Colet Navazos Extra Brut Equipo Navazos is aged for 30 months on the lees before degorgement.
Colet Navazos Extra Brut are sparkling wines under the appellation Penedés produced according to the traditional (champenoise) method of secondary fermentation in bottle, starting with base wines sourced from Colet vineyards. The southern presence is felt in the secondary fermentation and especially in the use of different dosage wines. All of the fruit comes from certified organic vineyards.
Equipo Navazos is a group of friends who have united over a shared passion for the treasures of Jerez, Sanlúcar, El Puerto and Montilla. Working with local producers to identify high quality butts of sherry with finesse and complexity which they then bottle and offer in very limited amounts. As well as producing sherry, Equipo Navazos has collaborated with other winemakers including Dirk Niepoort and Sergi Colet to develop some intriguing and characterful wines from Jerez and sparkling wines from Penèdes. The white chalky soil of the Jerez area, ‘albariza,’ is ideal for the cultivation of Palamino grapes which produce the sherry for which Jerez is so well known. The Manzanilla and Sherry wines are bottled in limited series, in successive numbered editions of dated releases (the date of each saca or withdrawal has been precisely stated on the label) so that aficionados can deliberately compare different editions of the same solera if they so desire.
