Tasting Notes

La Bota de Florpower 99 “Antes de la flor” MMXIX (“Before the flor”) is an unfortified white wine made from old, low-yielding vines from Pago Miraflores La Baja. This edition no.99 has not fermented in cask or aged under a veil of flor. It has only rested for a year in a stainless steel tank, protected from the flor, in order to settle before bottling. The result is a wine with marked personality that can challenge the best whites: fine, clean, sharp, vertical, with outstanding sapidity and a firm structure that augurs years of satisfactory evolution in the bottle, although it is also ready to be enjoyed from now. It will perfectly match a variety of light dishes: fish, seafood, soft cheeses, salads with delicate dressings … #tasting# At the root of EQUIPO NAVAZOS is the conviction that the greatness of traditional Andalusian wines resides, first of all, in the vines. For years we have worked with the hypothesis that the winery’s terroir has a weight equivalent to that of the vineyard’s terroir. However we are increasingly convinced that, when the latter is excellent, it always makes its way to become the protagonist, regardless of the age of the wine and of the aging process to which it has been subjected: under veil, oxidative or as a common white wine; fortified or not; fermented in casks or in tanks. After launching a good number of non-fortified white wines with different aging styles from the best crus of Sanlúcar, Jerez and Montilla, we believe that the exceptional 2019 vintage provides a magnificent opportunity to show wine lovers the raw essence of “florpower”, a pure expression of a vineyard, a grape and a climate. Of a terroir, to express it in one word.
