Equipo Navazos La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada Nº 110 Capataz Cabo
Under the direction of Eduardo Ojeda, it has been carefully tended over the past decade by Capataz Cabo, a Jerez man who works in Sanlúcar and one of the most famous cellar masters in the Sherry District.
A feature that contributes to the individuality and unparalleled organic character of this wine (intense and steely notes of salinity on the palate) is the way the barrels are (re)filled, always with must coming from vineyards in Sanlúcar, almost to a tocadedos (within easy reach of the top) - well above the usual 5/6 in the sherry region. This way the yeast layer or "flor" (now really weakened by the age of the wine and the lack of nutrients) in these barrels is more reduced and can be maintained with those scarce refills. It still fulfills its function as a physical barrier against the oxidation of the wine, but in its reduced state it cannot be fully effective and that is why this manzanilla offers elegant oxidation notes and a nascent increase in alcohol content, above 16%.
The actual average age of La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada 110 "Capataz Cabo" is approximately 14 years. It is a complex and powerful wine, with a balanced freshness and elegant oxidation notes that make it truly unique. Stunningly versatile on the dining table, it goes with a wide range of dishes, from the easiest (rich seafood dishes, fish-based rice recipes, charcuterie) to the most difficult (scrambled eggs with mushrooms, sheep's cheese, Asian spicy food). Best served around 12o C, in moderately large glassware.
The extraordinary NV La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada 110 Capataz Cabo, a wine that comes from a solera filled with wine from Sanlúcar, mostly from the Pago Miraflores, which is aged on average ten years under flor and another five years supplemented. This is nuttier than the regular Manzanilla and even nuttier than the majority of Manzanilla Pasada, retaining the salty and marine character, hints of iodine and ebb, but also something more floral and ethereal. The taste is super expressive and explosive, sharp and nuanced, with very pure and long-lasting flavors. Very impressive. This is really impressive but only 2,500 bottles were made.
