Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the better-known wines from Navazos has been the Manzanilla, which has been bottled unfiltered a number of times, and it now reaches us as the NV La Bota de Manzanilla 93, which is now sourced from La Guita (in the old days, it was from Sánchez Ayala; the source changed with edition 71) and averages seven years of age under flor. This is going to be the next release after edition 71, which was bottled almost three years ago. They want to make less frequent bottlings and let the wines develop in bottle. This certainly has the Guita character, mineral and austere with the explosive youth that often bring aromas of lemon peel and delicious bitter notes in the finish. This is really young and tender and should develop nicely in bottle. This seems to be a little lighter and more approachable. As they already have a lot of old and concentrated wines, it's good to have a less demanding and more approachable Manzanilla. 5,000 bottles.
