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 of it. Made from the Palomino grape, this is almost impossible to place. The mmxviii Nº 111 Manzanilla is one of the toppers of Equipo Navazos. La Bota de Manzanilla 101 "florpower mmxvi" is primarily a vintage (2016) white wine and a wine from one vineyard made 100% of Palomino Fino from vineyards in the Pago Miraflores La Baja (Sanlúcar) and fermented according to 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 101 series is the successor and the same wine that was once bottled as La Bota de Florpower 84 MMXVI (also vintage 2016) and this has been deliberately kept/reserved to fortify it a bit and let it mature like a manzanilla.
La Bota de Florpower is a series that is made by Equipo Navazos as a white wine (not fortified), a Manzanilla (this version) and a Palo Cortado.
The 111 is the successor of the Bota 101, this is a vintage (2018) white wine, and a single-vineyard, 100% varietal made of 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 spirits and 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 naturally salty as befits a Manzanilla. Delicious as a desert wine (yes, unique with hard cheeses) but also great with shellfish and (unroasted) nuts and of course with Iberico ham .
