Equipo Navazos, La Bota de Cream #79

Half-Bottle of Equipo Navazos, La Bota de Cream #79 - NV

Item # 28290 375mL

La Bota de Cream 79 “Bota NO” is a new release of editions 19 and 38 in the series: a sweet oloroso that has aged as such in a 9-butt solera under the label “Viejo Cream” This sweet oloroso results from a blending process with top-quality pedro ximénez that was performed early on, when the solera was founded, likely over a century ago. Harmonious integration during these decades has made the wine finer and rounder, thanks to the patience of several generations of winemakers, reaching today a prodigious balance between the raciness of dry oloroso and the mellowness of sweet PX.

In 2005 they started to select specific butts of...

Glossary

Spain

Central to the Spanish winemaking philosophy is the belief that wine should be released only when it is ready to be consumed, and not a moment before. Spanish wine law focuses squarely on this issue: the terms Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva are highly regulated indicators of the amount of time a wine has aged prior to its release. In Rioja, Navarra, and the Ribera del Duero (which have the most stringent requirements) red Crianzas must be aged a minimum of two years; Reservas, at least three...

Jerez

Sherry actually gets its name from our anglo-inability to pronounce the word “Jerez,” the town at the southern end of Spain in which the wine is produced. Like Champagne, Sherry can only be called Sherry if it comes from this specific region. That said, there are other “Sherry-styled” wines worthy of note produced outside of the Sherry D.O. (known as vinos generosos). Montilla, lying to the north-east of Jerez, produces some of the finest Pedro Ximénez in the world.

Pedro Ximenez

Also known as PX (thankfully to those of us who have a dislike of words that begin with x’s), this dessert-style fortified wine is made entirely from the highly-sugared Pedro Ximénez grapes. Many of the best examples come from the region of Montilla, and are thus not technically classified as Sherries. PX’s are intensely, almost syrupy sweet, and are ideal drizzled over vanilla ice cream (or over your waffles, if you like to drink in the mornings). If you’ve got a serious sweet tooth, PX is for...
