Fino, “La Bota 115”, Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez-Xérès-Sherry
La Bota 115 is the tenth saca (extraction for bottling) based around the same solera in Jerez de la Frontera, overseen by Navazos co-founder Eduardo Ojeda for the past several decades. This release, unlike previous iterations, employs a small portion of younger criaderas (rows of casks) from the Macharnudo Alto vineyard, which brings freshness and elegance to the blend. With an average wine age of eight years, #115 was bottled with only an ultra-gentle filtration in order to preserve its ravishing texture—silky yet intense, with an almost buttery roundness—and its rich golden hue underlines its noncommercial, uncompromising spirit of origin. 15% alcohol; bottled in August 2022; 5,000 bottles produced.
