Equipo Navazos "La Bota de Fino #68 - Macharnudo Alto" Jerez

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV La Bota de Fino Macharnudo Alto 68 is a similar wine to what was bottled in the editions 54, 34, 27, 18, 15, 7 and 2; it is produced like the wines from yesteryear, fermented in bota and kept in contact with flor for some ten years. This is a classic already, and they are bottling more or less the same botas as in previous editions. Here, the soil is as strong (or more) than the long aging, and has lots of things in common, the chalkiness, with their other wines (think Navazos Niepoort for example), which ...

Equipo Navazos La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada #60 Sanlucar de Barrameda

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The so-called NV La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada 60 Bota Punta is sourced from a special cask 'Bota Punta' that was already bottled as numbers 20, 40 and 50. This particular cask from the Manzanilla Pasada 'solera' from the Calle Misericordia winery from La Guita was isolated, because it has a very marked biological character - a very old Manzanilla that keeps more 'flor' than the other butts in the 'solera' and shows less oxidative. The other particularity is that this cask is always refilled with wine from the oth ...

Equipo Navazos "#74" Oloroso Montilla

It's getting close to the character of a Palo Cortado with some hints of apricots, old furniture and varnish. The textbook nose is very expressive and the palate is round and lush, velvety with a finish dominated by nuts and a spirity touch. It ...

Alvear "1927" Pedro Ximenez Solera Montilla-Moriles (375ml)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer.

Alvear "Carlos VII" Amontillado Montilla-Moriles (375ml)

Caramelized citrus, honey, salted peanuts, hints of blue cheese, and tons of spice notes all flow to a powerful yet elegant sherry that has bright acidity and a beautiful finish. This release can be thought of as a very old Fino where the flor has died and sunk to the bottom of the barrel, exposing the wine to oxygen and oxidation, which concentrates the wine (and raises the alcohol)."

Bodegas Yuste "Aurora" Amontillado Sanlucar de Barrameda 500ml

From a solera begun in 1991, this spectacular Sanluqueño Amontillado contains wine of an average age of 15-20 years old. Blended in, there is a tiny amount of very old wine discovered in the bodega shortly after its purchase. It had been sealed in plaster, as the former owner was apparently determined to keep this pre-phylloxera wine, unblended, all to himself! Aromatics reveal salty flor, followed by toffee. The wine is racy on the palate, until it turns rich and succulent, with buttered and roasted pecan and almond flavors. This is really quite good. ( ...

When they do the spring bottling the flor is really blooming (literally!) and the wines are more expressive.

It's sourced from the 'bota punta' of a solera of 42 butts that contains wine that easily exceeds 50 years of age.

Hidalgo Pastrana Manzanilla Pasada Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Pasada is an old style of Manzanilla being resurrected in Jerez. Normally, a Manzanilla will have three years of aging; a pasada continues to rest in the solera as the veil of flor begins to fade. This allows the wine to begin a slow oxidation process, going beyond fruit into more complex aromas. Pastrana, selected from an extremely chalky parcel in the Pago Miraflores, is one of the best examples of this style on the market. The wine ages under its veil of flor for 12 years before bottling en rama (with minimal filtration). It ...

It was made from old wines that had almost lost their flor and had begun to oxidize, their color darkening as they gained depth and complexity. Although La Panesa is not, strictly speaking, a Fino Amontillado, it has the characteristics of those wines from the past.
