La Bota No 94 Oloroso
In 2005, a private group of Spanish sherry lovers led by wine writer, Jesús Barquín, found 65 butts of exceptional 20+ year-old Amontillado hidden away in the bodega Sánchez Ayala in Sanlúcar. Determined that it would not go to waste, but with no desire for it to be incorporated into a larger-scale solera blend, they selected one cask and bottled it, naming it La Bota de Amontillado Navazos no°1. The first releases were small (around 200-800 bottles) and private – it was not until 2008 that releases were made available to the public.
La Bota no°94 “Más allá del NO” was bottled from a single butt of very old Oloroso sourced from Eduardo Ojeda in Jerez. Given its age, this is a wine of extreme concentration and complexity. Just 750 half bottles were filled.
