About

92

"Navazos already bottled a very young Palo Cortado from Sanlúcar with the number 52 back in 2014, and it's now time for a new edition, the NV La Bota de Palo Cortado 75 "Sanlúcar." It's produced with grapes from the Miraflores La Baja vineyard in Sanlúcar de Barrameda from the 2010 harvest—even if the vintage date is not shown on the label. Fermented in stainless steel, it achieved a natural alcohol level of around 12% and was straight away fortified to 17.5% alcohol. This has developed very nicely since the first bottling, with more precision and character, and it feels more "palo cortado," with notes of aromatic herbs and a sweetish tone, hints of apricots and a very expressive and tasty finish. It matured in topped-up, 225-liter barriques (a rarity in Jerez) for seven years. 2,800 bottles were filled in May 2017."
