A powerful if extremely elegant Palo Cortado, sourced from oxidative wines. That is the other way to achieve a true Palo Cortado: wines of remarkable finesse and expressiveness, with very complex nose blending aromas of amontillado and oloroso, plus citrus notes of orange peel.
The origin of La Bota de Palo Cortado 92 “Pata de Gallina” is a selection we made eight years ago among the finest casks of oxidative wine owned by Almacenista Juan García Jarana. Two previous releases have been made, La Bota de Palo Cortado 34 “Pata de Gallina”, bottled in 2012, and La Bota de Palo Cortado 72 “Pata de Gallina”, bottled in 2017. This is, therefore, the third saca or withdrawal from a small solera (locally, ‘altarillo’, for ‘little altar’) of Equipo Navazos settled at Fernando de Castilla that bears our stamp.
The average age of this wine is more than 30 years. 1,800, 500ml bottles.
