About this Wine

The selected cask for this wine belongs to a solera of 12 butts known as Vintage 1809, which has not been in the market for many decades. Documents from the last years of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century mention this Oloroso as one of the oldest and best (and, therefore, expensive) wines of the house. It had a place of priviledge together with other legendary wines, as well as with the “younger” (but now disappeared) Vintage 1820 and Vintage 1840. La Bota de Oloroso 78 “Bota NO” is a wonderfully aged and concentrated wine, but still fine and very dry. A true meditation draught.

Tasting notes

It is a winemaking tradition in Andalusia to mark with a “NO” several casks of particular quality, keeping them apart from the seasonal sacas that are at the core of the solera system. As a consequence, such wines become more and more concentrate and old. This is the case of this bota NO, old Oloroso from a butt selected among the several marked with a clear “NO” at the ancient house from where this wine comes.

FROM THE PRESS

“Undoubtedly Oloroso, with intense and inviting aromas of toffee, praline, caramel and nuts. Massive weight and concentration, wonderfully complex. Awesome.”
98/100, Decanter.com
