Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The unfortified Palomino from Sanlúcar from the 2016 vintage was bottled as 2016 La Bota de Florpower 84 MMXVI, a wine matured under flor in bota and stainless steel and bottled bone dry at 12% alcohol. It comes from two plots in the Pago Miraflores Baja, and it fermented with indigenous yeasts in sherry butts. The wine matured in fifteen 600-liter sherry casks for eight months under flor and then was transferred to a stainless steel vat, where it matured for a further nine months and also developed a thin layer of flor yeasts. 2016 was a milder year, especially the summer, and the wine is fresh, sharp and precise. It's very much marked by the vineyard, as it's selected from the old vines from Miraflores, grapes that have unusual power and intensity, but at the same time, it keeps great balance and finesse. 3,000 bottles were filled in the spring of 2018.
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Biological ageing in sherry casks under a film of yeasts (velo de flor). Aged for 1 year in stainless steel tanks.
