La Bota de Palo Cortado 102, is in fact the same wine that they bottled in 2014 (La Bota 52). In the winemaker's words: "This is a new take of our (now not so) young Palo Cortado from the 2010 vintage, a personal creation of Eduardo Ojeda, from the same musts derived from two adjoining vineyards of old vines (50+ and 80+ years), which are extremely low yielding in the Pago de Miraflores La Baja. This wine has been aged as single vintage in a number of Bordeaux barrels, plus a few larger casks, all filled to one ‘tocadedos’ (a thumb’s depth) to avoid excessive oxidation much as possible. The most impressive characteristic of this wine is its distinctive minerality, unique to the coastal regions of Sanlúcar,.For a Palo Cortado, its alcoholic strength is modest at 18%, and so perfectly integrated that were it to be tasted blind seems lower. A very drinkable and refreshing wine, and increasingly complex and long." 750ml
