Equipo Navazos La Bota de Palo Cortado Nº 86
A mind-blowing sherry is the non-vintage Equipo Navazos La Bota de Palo Cortado Nº 86. It is a very unique palo cortado, from the best and most accurate producer in the Montilla area. The excellence in the vineyard (both because of the singular
terroir of the Altos de Moriles, and for the quality of its viticulture) is the key to show the richness that the grape pedro ximénez can show. The elegance of La Bota de Palo Cortado 86 "Bota NO" shows as an undisputed palo cortado: an oxidative wine with a lightness and a delicacy that would not suit a typical Oloroso from Montilla. It started life as an Oloroso, but given that fine character it was considered a Palo Cortado. And even within the Palo Cortado, this is extremely elegant.
It is not an extremely old wine (is about 30 years old), unlike other wines that EQUIPO NAVAZOS has launched (like the very old No. 73 and 78 for example). The exceptionality of this wine comes from finesse, together with uniqueness and scarcity, as only a single barrel has been selected from the small solera of this wine. This is a real Palo Cortado, a fine oxidative wine. In October 2018, 1,100 bottles were filled. 95/100 Parker
