If you're even considering this sherry then you know about Equipo Navazos and it needs no introduction.

This rare wine is bottled from a selection made more than five years ago of the finest casks from an old solera owned by almacenista Juan García Jarana.

The previous release was the La Bota 72, bottled in 2017 after a short period of settling in a small, six-butt solera that was moved to Fernando de Castilla. That wine caused a mini sensation amongst Navazos fans and this should too.

The wine has now aged for five more years in the same tiny solera (locally called an altarillo, or 'little altar') that bears the Equipo Navazos stamp. The average age of this wine is now 33-35 years, yet it's remarkably fresh and explosively intense.

The perfume is lifted and stops you in your tracks with notes of dried fig, caramel, coffee and balsam, while the palate is almost too seductive and delicious for word. At once it is fluid, juicy, sweet (again from age, not sugar – this has zero sugar), driven and saline, offering the characters of the nose, but also sea spray and even bitter chocolate and dried orange. Despite all of these seemingly hedonistic characters, the wine remains refreshingly dry, salty, spicy and complex. This is something very special.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
