Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There is often a twist on the Navazos releases, and the 2015 La Bota de Manzanilla 82 Florpower MMXV is the same wine as edition 77, but it was fortified and had additional time under flor, almost three years. It's a single-vintage and single-harvest Manzanilla, a true rarity nowadays, from two plots in Pago Miraflores la Baja in Sanlúcar de Barrameda fermented in 600-liter sherry butts, where it matured until its bottling in 2018. It has great complexity and fulfills the rules to be a Manzanilla, but it has the vineyard signature (the old vines in Miraflores) that provides great elegance. Even if the vintage is not certified as such, this is a Manzanilla that inherits the FlorPower character and its finesse. It has a spectacular palate, great power and finesse, and it's very developed, as it was never refreshed with newer wine. Simply spectacular. 3,500 bottles produced.
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Biological ageing for almost 3 years under a film of yeasts (velo de flor). Aged for 1 year in oak barrels.
