Equipo Navazos La Bota de Cream "Bota NO" #79 Half is available to buy in increments of 1
A quality Cream is not an oxymoron, as proven by the NV La Bota de Cream 79 “Bota NO,” a revision of the previous Botas 19 and 38 but bottled eight and five years later, respectively. This has to be around 40 years old and is sourced from Valdespino, where the Oloroso was blended with 25% sweet Pedro Ximénez possibly a century ago, so the wines have had time enough to get integrated and age together. This has 115 grams of residual sugar. It has a nose of old wine and doesn't smell sweet at all, with just a hint of carob beans and notes of concentration (coconut, rusty iron, tree bark). The palate is not that sweet and it's very powerful and concentrated, with the PX completely integrated. 900 half bottles were produced.
