La Bota Florpower no 99
A white wine that is basically an unfortified sherry!
WInemakers notes: 'Made exclusively of Palomino Fino sourced from the blessed plot known as Pago Miraflores (albarizo close to the ocean), it fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, it was transferred to 20 butts where it was aged under flor for 8 months. Un July 2013 it all went to a single stainless steel vat where - still under the by now much milder influence of flor yeasts - it remained until bottling in March 2015'
Wine Advocate: 'This is basically a young, unfortified Manzanilla with a nose mixing notes of yeasts, nuts, with some reminiscences of a Champagne base wine, with the strong chalk component, hints of cider and a light to medium-bodied palate offering sweet fruit, and good freshness. This is still very young, and I might be underestimating it. 5,000 bottles.' 92+ points
