Description

A dry table wine from the 2019 vintage made from Palomino from the 'grand cru' of Sanlucar, the single vineyard (Pago) Miraflores La Baja.

Tight, savoury, salty and extremely minerally, with aromas of salt bush, wildflowers and a hint of citrus. All aged in steel not oak. A supreme and rare harkback to the history of the region where dry, unfortified wines once held sway.

'MMXIX Antes de la Flor' is '2019 Before the Flor'...

La Bota de Florpower 99 “Antes de la flor” MMXIX (“Before the flor”) is an unfortified white wine made from old, low-yielding vines from Pago Miraflores La Baja. It coincides in its origin with the 2010 to 2018 vintages that we have been putting on the market since the initial La Bota de Vino Blanco 44 “Florpower” MMX, with the peculiarity that this edition no.99 has not fermented in cask or aged under a veil of flor. It has only rested for a year in a stainless steel tank, protected from the flor, in order to settle before bottling.

The result is a wine with marked personality that can challenge the best whites: fine, clean, sharp, vertical, with outstanding sapidity and a firm structure that augurs years of satisfactory evolution in the bottle, although it is also ready to be enjoyed from now. It will perfectly match a variety of light dishes: fish, seafood, soft cheeses, salads with delicate dressings …

17 Points - “Smells salty and just very slightly yeasty, even without the flor influence – or maybe these are a consortium of aromas I associate with Manzanilla when in fact they are the aromas of wine made from this vineyard? Dried wild flowers and hay, too. Pungent but with an aroma I find impossible to describe. There is a very strong mineral quality but I am not sure where mineral starts and salty ends. Salty in the mouth too, powerful flavour with intensity but almost no weight in the mouth thanks to the very low alcohol. Salty, sour, mineral, with citrus at the very end. The producers note: ‘fine, clean, sharp, vertical’. Extremely pure, mouth-watering, long. Not for fruit lovers, it’s lean but not in the least thin. Remarkable intensity. If you taste this alongside the 101 Manzanilla, there are so many similarities, this is just more delicate and not at all oxidative. 17/20.” - Jancis Robinson

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.

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.
