Mind-bending, Bottomlessly Complex
La Bota Amontillado Bota A.R. 49 375ml
"This is truly world class. Grab it while (and if) you can!"
-Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
At this point, it's almost taken for granted that Equipo Navazos is turning out some of the most exciting wines around. Their limited releases of painstakingly and thoughtfully selected sherries take the category to a new level.
In terms of insane complexity, their recent releases from soleras that were owned by Gaspar Florido and are now in Pedro Romero's bodega inhabit a very special, elevated realm even in the context of La Bota.
In all likelihood, their Amontillado Bota AR #49 is the grandest, most soul-stirring release from these superlative soleras. Recently, the Amontillado #49 received a huge boost when the Wine Advocate's Luis Gutierrez placed it as absolute perfection in his review.
We're in one hundred percent agreement with Mr. Gutierrez. The #49 is beautiful in the most awe-inspiring, thrilling way.
It's an 80-year average age Amontillado from a single superlative bota (barrel). This is as complicated as wine gets.
Guitierrez's note captures this so well that's it merits this long quote: "It keeps changing in the glass, showing new nuances every five minutes: orange peel, spices, nutmeg, incense, seaweed, salted almonds, hazelnuts, iron, cigar ash... more and more marine as it warms up in contact with air."
This is the perfect time of the year for a wine like this. It's only a half-bottle, but it's so intense that you can only drink it in small doses and it lasts a good while once opened. You can meditate over a small glass for a long time as it evolves and develops increasingly mind-bending dimensions. This is one of the most epic and memorable things you'll ever drink.
