La Bota de Palo Cortado 75 Sanlúcar
La Bota de Palo Cortado 75 "Sanlúcar" es la nueva edición de una aportación rompedora entre los palos cortados del Marco de Jerez, el resultado de una reflexión de años y la experiencia de décadas. Un Palo Cortado joven y finísimo, muy bebible y refrescante, de la cosecha 2010 del Pago Miraflores La Baja. Equilibrio y delicadeza en un vino en el que hubo tan solo una leve exposición natural y casi inevitable a la crianza biológica.

Opinión de los críticos
Sourced from Palomino grapes in the Miraflores vineyard area from the 2010 and 2015 vintages, this is such an approachable Palo Cortado. From the start it was destined as a Palo Cortado so went straight into barrel for oxidative ageing, however the butts were filled quite full, leading to less aggressive oxidation and consequently a Sherry of great vibrancy. Walnuts, hazelnuts and dried apricots are layered on top of orange peel and biscuity characters, with a saline finish. The palate is intense but the alcohol is balanced by acidity, making it very pleasurable and easy to enjoy.
Navazos already bottled a very young Palo Cortado from Sanlúcar with the number 52 back in 2014, and it's now time for a new edition, the NV La Bota de Palo Cortado 75 "Sanlúcar." It's produced with grapes from the Miraflores La Baja vineyard in Sanlúcar de Barrameda from the 2010 harvest—even if the vintage date is not shown on the label. Fermented in stainless steel, it achieved a natural alcohol level of around 12% and was straight away fortified to 17.5% alcohol. This has developed very nicely since the first bottling, with more precision and character, and it feels more "palo cortado," with notes of aromatic herbs and a sweetish tone, hints of apricots and a very expressive and tasty finish. It matured in topped-up, 225-liter barriques (a rarity in Jerez) for seven years. 2,800 bottles were filled in May 2017.
