15% ABV.  From the stellar Equipo Navazos stable, this Manzanilla comes from a 60-strong cask selection made by Navazos founders Jesus Barquín and Eduardo Ojeda that was plucked from the production of La Guita, one of the most famous (and finest) Manzanilla producers (and where Ojeda oversees production in his role as the technical director of José Estévez). As always, this current bottling was drawn from its barrels en rama (directly). This is how Manzanilla used to be bottled before sterile filtering became the standard in Jerez.

The current batch was bottled in 2024. It’s a wonderfully potent and briny yet seductive wine with a deep, silky texture and plenty of sustained, tangy drive. Four and a half years under flor and gentle bottling direct from cask has also delivered a vibrant orange/gold colour and some nutty development. It’s a much deeper colour than most other Manzanillas on the market (which are typically very clear due to their youth and sterile filtration). That makes this unique in comparison to other Manzanillas in its price range. It remains light years ahead of more common, conventional Manzanillas.

Reviews

“This has incredible quality for the price. Every year they bottle the same number of bottles (around 2,600) at the same time of the year. This particular bottling felt unusually fresh for the time it had already been in bottle. It has more body and structure, and it might develop slower and longer.”
92 points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
“Pale straw-green; a mown grass, hedgerow, nutty bouquet. The palate is vibrant, fresh and crunchy, with a classic dry finish, lingering long, with no phenolics, and a fresh breeze aftertaste.”
95 points, James Halliday, the Weekend Australian Magazine
