Description

A Fino that 'will become an Amontillado' but that category doesn't exist in Sherry legislation...The veil of flor has weakened and it is on the way to oxidative ageing/p>

Extraordinary golden Fino, sourced from the Perez Barquero Bodega in Montilla - and this is concentrated dry wine is made from Pedro Ximenez, not Palomino!

Painfully intense, nutty, almond oil, length for decades. One for the true Sherry fanatic.

La Bota de Fino nº 85 “Un fino que va para amontillado…” has been sourced from the oldest fino solera in Pérez Barquero’s Bodega Los Amigos: a total of 63 butts located in third row, of which we had the privilege to choose 15 that represent the current state of the solera. Seeking a distinctive character we opted for those butts that most clearly showed an incipient amontillamiento while preserving the fino character—as proved by its alcoholic content: 16%.


La Bota de Fino (Amontillado) number 85 is a fascinating wine, deep and elegant, as well as exceptionally versatile on the dinner table. Taken from the casks in October 2018 and bottled in December 2018, unfined and virtually unfiltered, its beautiful golden color is the one it exhibits straight from the butt.

94 Points - “The extraordinary NV La Bota de Fino 85 “Un fino que va para amontillado…” is not a wine from Jerez but from Montilla-Moriles in the province of Cordova, an appellation where the majority of vines are Pedro Ximénez and the wines produced are similar to Jerez wines. In fact, Amontillado means "in the style of Montilla," because the style originated there. This wine, from the same origin as edition 45 (and 24) that would be called Fino Amontillado if it wasn't forbidden, has taken biological aging under flor to an extreme, and the wine has started its oxidative aging on its way to becoming an Amontillado. 2,800 bottles were filled in December 2018.” - Luis Gutierrez (The Wine Advocate)

    A rare privilege

    Drinking a wine like this transports you into the astonishing living history of one of the worlds greatest and most underrated wine regions. Equipo Navazos are doing us all a favour by unearthing these treasures, exposing us to how thoroughly delicious and beguilingly complex Sherry can be. This dry Pedro Ximenez interwines the fading olive and saline echoes of a retreating flor with the emerging but still subtle nutty undertones that exposure to oxygen brings. The depth and elegance evolve and dance together beautifully over a few weeks of evolution in the bottle. Do yourself a favour.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
