Equipo Navazos "#74" Oloroso Montilla

SKU #1425090 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Sourced from the same solera as the La Bota 46, from the cellars of Pérez Barquero in Montilla-Moriles, but this time taken only from the solera, the NV La Bota de Oloroso 74 “Montilla” is Pedro Ximénez that has been aged oxidatively in a solera for an average of 30 years. It's getting close to the character of a Palo Cortado with some hints of apricots, old furniture and varnish. The textbook nose is very expressive and the palate is round and lush, velvety with a finish dominated by nuts and a spirity touch. It's a powerful and full-bodied Oloroso that was never fortified but achieved its 21% alcohol through concentration from old age. 3,000 bottles were filled in April 2017.  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

With this release number 74 we are revisiting the same solera in Montilla from where our release number 46 was sourced. Again Pérez Barquero, where Rafael Cordoba, co-owner of Pérez Barquero, has been controlling with exceptional care the vineyards and vintages for decades. He is a master in obtaining truly outstanding musts, both yema (first press) and color (second press). With these second press musts, locally called “vino de color”, the expert winemaker Juan Márquez produces their Olorosos. Very fragrant and strongly bodied wines, wines that very noticeably show the rotundity of the Pedro Ximénez grape. La Bota de Oloroso #74 “Montilla” comes from a selection of casks from the Solera Diógenes, located in third row at the Bodega El Puente. The main difference is that, this time, all the casks selected belong to the solera itself, while for the release number 46 we picked some vessels from younger criaderas as well. This fact, together with the elapsed time and with the fact that the withdrawals from these casks have been small, explain why this wine is almost five years older than its predecessor, La Bota de Oloroso nº 46. Its estimated average age is therefore close to 30 years. Drink it in medium sized glasses (riesling or white wine type) in small doses and cool (about 12º/13ºC), in order to attenuate the intensity of its powerful structure. The complex fragrance of this Oloroso is powerful, which allows it to wholly boast its personality at the suggested service
