Pre-Arrival - September shipment. Saca of January 2017. Rey Fernando de Castilla, Jerez de la Frontera. This rare wine is bottled from a selection made more than five years ago from the finest casks of old wine owned by Almacenista Juan GarcĂ­a Jarana. The previous release was La Bota de Palo Cortado 34 "Pata de Gallina", bottled in 2012 after a short period of settling in a small, 6 butt solera that was moved to Fernando de Castilla. Since then, the wine has aged for five more years in the same tiny solera (locally called an 'altarillo', for 'little altar') that bears the Equipo Navazos stamp. The average age of this wine is 30 years, yet it's remarkably fresh and explosively intense in its personality. The perfume is lifted and stops you in your tracks with the most beautiful notes of dried fig, creamed caramel and balsam while the palate is almost too seductive and delicious for words - at once fluid, driven and saline, offering the characters of the nose but also sea spray and even bitter chocolate and dried orange. Despite all of these seemingly hedonistic characters, the wine remains refreshingly dry, salty, spicy and complex throughout. This is something very special.
