Hot Off The Press: Wine Advocate Goes Insane For Equipo Navazos

Hot Off The Press: Wine Advocate Goes Insane For Equipo Navazos

"...if you are embarking upon a journey into the wonderful world of sherry, then I cannot think of a better springboard than Equipo Navazos." – Neal Martin (WA Issue #208)
 
The much anticipated Wine Advocate Issue #208 just dropped on Friday and I hate to say, "I told you so" but the Sherrys of Equipo Navazos are on fire. With scores ranging from 90WA-98WA its clear the Equipo Navazos collection is not your grandmother's night-cap, these are serious composed wines of "pleasure and intellect".
 
The story of how Equipo Navazos (in a very simplified fashion) came to be, is a serendipitous meeting of friends tasting Amontillado together from a cask in Sanlucar. The Bota where they were tasting wanted to sell the remaining Amontillado to free up a cask for Manzanilla, and so the seed was planted: Equipo Navazos would purchase casks of exceptional quality and sell them as limited release Sherry. However don't be mistaken, Equipo Navazos acts as more than mere negociants, the selection process is rigorous and the selected butts are true representations of what an Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, ought to be.
 
These are some of the most thought provoking and interesting wines we have tasted to date. If you missed this incredible collection the first time around, don't miss them now. With such limited quantity of these unique treasures in the world, and paired with the glowing praises of the Advocate, jump in now!
