The La Bota de Manzanilla NO 93 Navazos Equipo Navazos is the ninth release, all of them with a pure Sanlúcar character, and this one sourced from the same soleras as No.71, in order to enhance the authenticity of the original style of the manzanilla. It comes from a selection among several dozens of toneles and botas of excellent quality, casks that have been carefully put aside and looked after by Eduardo Ojeda and his team for more than twelve years since they arrived in Sanlúcar in January 2007. The estimated average age of this manzanilla is seven years old.
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.
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.
