This is the ninth release of La Bota de Manzanilla de EQUIPO NAVAZOS, all of them with a pure Sanlúcar character, and this one sourced from the same soleras as No.71, in order to enhance the authenticity of the original style of our manzanilla. It comes from a selection among several dozens of toneles and botas of otherworldly quality, casks that have been carefully put apart and looked after by Eduardo Ojeda and his team along more than twelve years, since they arrived in Sanlúcar in January 2007. The estimated average age of this manzanilla is seven years old.
Showing a well settled and profound profile as well as salty and cheerful vibrancy, La Bota de Manzanilla No.93 “Navazos” is an unbeatable match on the dinner table. It excels with dishes from the Spanish seafood tradition: mackerel potatoes, tuna stew, and boiled shellfish; and international cuisine: toro sashimi, marinated herrings, mussels. It has been bottled after only the slightest filtration in order to preserve its genuine character and its deep golden color with green hues as if straight from the butt.
It is advisable to handle this manzanilla with just as much care as any other great white wine. It should be served at about 9/11ºC in fairly large stemware, never in the cliché copita.
