"Navazos releases a super-old wine from time to time, and this time it's the turn of an Amontillado from Montilla-Moriles, produced with Pedro Ximénez grapes and sourced from the Pérez Barquero winery. It's presented as NV La Bota de Amontillado 73 “Bota Aniversario.” These old wines are always very concentrated and powerful, and the challenge here is to find one that is balanced.
A similar wine was bottled as La Bota 26 to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the project, but it was never sold and instead was used for gifts for the core of Navazos customers from the bota 1. That 26 was taken from the bota 'No', and this 73, in order to not empty cask number 8 (the bota 'no'), was blended with cask number 3. Despite being bottled with some 21% alcohol, this wine is supposedly not fortified, and the alcoholic degree is achieved by pure evaporation and concentration through old age. This is getting the character of a very old wine, with hints of rusty nails and noble woods, a volatile touch and lots of nut notes. The palate is powerful, with volume, sharpness, elegance, intensity and a very long finish with echoes of low tide and rusty nails. A unique wine. 1,100 half bottles produced."
