Navazos I Think Manzanilla Saca de July de 2018
From the stellar Equipo Navazos stable, the latest ultra-fine I Think Manzanilla was drawn from butt, en rama, in April 2018. Like previous bottling'=s, this is a wonderfully potent, briny wine with deep, silky texture and plenty of sustained, tangy flavour. This wine spent some four and a half years under flor before being bottled gently (en rama) so as to deliver a Manzanilla in the bottle that tasted as though it were being served straight from the cask. This is how Manzanilla used to be bottled before sterile filtering became the standard in Jerez. These two features - age and cask bottling - already make this unique by comparison to all other Manzanilla in this price range. Then there is the quality. It has almost the same deliciousness rating as the horizon-expanding La Bota Manzanilla releases - super tangy, spicy, pungent, salty, chalky, cool, refreshing and long - but understandably, it is less intense, less complex and more youthful. Nonetheless, it is damn delicious. As far as texture, flavour and persistence are concerned, it remains light years ahead from the more common, conventional, heavily filtered Manzanillas out there.
