Equipo Navazos, 72 'Pata de Gallina', La Bota de Palo Cortado, Jerez NV (50cl)

56.00

With an average age of over 30 years, the base wines for this oxidative Palo Cortado come from some of the finest barrels from Almacenista Juan García Jarana which were also used for the Palo Cortado Bota No 34 Pata de Gallina but with an additional 5 years of aging. Fine and Expressive, with a complex nose and palate akin to an amondillado with notes of orange peel.


Press reviews:

Jancis Robinson:From a selection made more than five years ago among the finest casks of oxidative wine. The average age of this wine is 30 years. Pale apricot gold. Rich, apricot and bitter orange fruit aromas with a smoky, yeasty overlay, that smokiness a bit like lapsang. Unbelievably intense and concentrated. Stops you in your tracks and makes it hard to taste anything afterwards. Endless and increasingly complex in the glass. There’s bitter-sweetness, though it is dry, and a depth that is classic Palo Cortado. The finish is bitter toffee and apricot. But dry.” 19 points

The Wine Advocate: “The older of the two Palo Cortados I tasted in this sitting was the NV La Bota de Palo Cortado 72 "Pata de Gallina," bottled at an average age of 35 years (it would qualify for a VORS if they wanted) and of Jerez origin. It was sourced from the Almacenista Juan García Jarana and then matured in the Fernando de Castilla winery. It spent some 30 years in a solera of casks filled to 5/6 of their volume and the last five years untouched in six 500-liter butts that belong to Equipo Navazos in the cellars of Fernando de Castilla. It's powerful and elegant, with the oxidative style more present. This is surprisingly elegant, with lots of finesse, nuances and character and a very long, tasty finish. Number 34 was an earlier edition of this same wine. 2,000 half-litre bottles in were filled in January 2017.“ 95 points
