Equipo Navazos la Bota de Manzanilla Florpower MMXVIII Nº 111
The Equipo Navazos la Bota de Manzanilla Florpower style is a version that has made Equipo Navazos so famous. Only a few thousand bottles are made. Made from the Palomino grape, this is almost impossible to place. The mmxviii Nº 111 Manzanilla is one of the highlights of Equipo Navazos. La Bota de Manzanilla 101 "florpower mmxvi" is primarily a vintage (2018) white wine and a single-vineyard wine made 100% from Palomino Fino from vineyards in the Pago Miraflores La Baja (Sanlúcar) and fermented according the traditional method. Fortified from 12% to 15% with wine spirit, later aged in Sanlúcar de Barrameda for almost three years following the traditional organic system. The 111 series is the successor and the same wine that was once bottled as La Bota de Florpower 84 MMXVI (also vintage 2016) and some of this has been deliberately preserved/reserved to strengthen it slightly and allow it to ripen like a manzanilla.
The 111 is the successor to the Bota 101, this is a vintage (2018) white wine, and a single-vineyard, 100% variety made from Palomino Fino from vineyards in the Pago Miraflores La Baja (Sanlúcar). After a year of aging under flor at natural strength, it was lightly fortified with wine spirit and also aged for almost three years in Sanlúcar de Barrameda according to the traditional organic system. It is therefore a manzanilla: a single vineyard, vintage manzanilla. This is a great Florpower. Tight, dry, very elegant, fresh, nice acidity and of course salty, as befits a Manzanilla. Delicious as a desert wine (yes, unique with hard cheeses) but also great with crustaceans and (unroasted) nuts and of course with Iberico ham .
