Equipo Navazos La Bota de Color Viejisimo #33 NV (375ML)
"This is a very old wine best intended to provide aromatic pleasure while we barely sip it—wet our lips in it, really. All parameters hit high here: high concentration, dry extract, and acidity. Sugar contents are around 190 grams per liter, which makes it officially a "dulce"—since color wines have currently disappeared from any official classification of Sherry wines." Producer Note "The origins of the unique Lot 33 La Bota de Dulce come from so-called “color wine” that came from the now discontinued process of undertaking a slow fermentation of musts from Palomino Fino and arrope (a must reduced in volume in a cauldron). Color wines were used to deepen the hue of regular bottlings and enhance the aromatics, but were also blended with old oloroso and allowed to age in butts. Understandably, few of these now remain. The Lot 33 comes from a single cask selected from three surviving butts of color wine from Almacenista Juan Garcia Jarana. Jesus remarked that it contains 280 grams of residual sugar counterbalanced by 15-grams- per-liter acidity. It has an extraordinary, roiling nose, with lovely citric, balsamic, orange peel and Asian spice scents that are utterly intoxicating. Then the shock! The palate is founded upon searing acidity, so much so that my face scrunched up, possibly more in pain than pleasure. While I find it fascinating for what it represents, the truth is that personally it is more an “experience” than something I can divine pleasure in." Neal Martin, WA 08/13
