Another ground-breaking, almost experimental - or should I say accidental as this is how this Florpower line started - wine is the 2012 La Bota de Florpower 57 MMXII that was selected from one of the best vintages in recent history in the Sherry district. Made with Palomino grapes grown in Sanlúcar de Barrameda from the Miraflores vineyard, it is a wine aged for eight months in 15 Manzanilla butts with a strong veil of yeast, flor, and then transferred to a stainless steel vat where it continued aging under much weaker flor for 15 months until bottled in October 2014. This is basically a young, unfortified Manzanilla with a nose mixing notes of yeasts, nuts, with some reminiscences of a Champagne base wine, with the strong chalk component, hints of cider and a light to medium-bodied palate offering sweet fruit, and good freshness. This is still very young, and I might be underestimating it. 5,000 bottles.
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Aged for 8 months in oak barrels.
