375mL

The inaugural release of the "I think" Manzanilla is truly a ‘Junior de La Bota'. It has almost the same deliciousness rating as the La Bota Manzanilla releases – super tangy, spicy, pungent, salty, chalky, cool, refreshing and long – but, obviously, it is less intense and less complex.

Product Overview

Those who know the Equipo Navazos story will already know that only the very best wines and those with the maximium distinctiveness and maximum personality make the cut.

Winemaking Notes

The name and the label by the way reference a much debated page found posthumously in the notebooks of Charles Darwin. Many believe this doodle with the words "I think" beside it may have been penned at the moment Darwin grasped his theory (now law) of evolution by natural selection. Sherry evolves too, and the "I think" Manzanilla is certainly another great leap forward.

Tasting Notes

The inaugural release of the "I think" Manzanilla (375ml) is truly a ‘Junior de La Bota'. The wine spent some 4½ years under floor before being bottled gently (en rama) to preserve the original authenticity (colour, intensity and aromas) and so as to deliver a Manzanilla in the bottle that tasted as though it were being served straight from the cask. It has almost the same deliciousness rating as the La Bota Manzanilla releases – super tangy, spicy, pungent, salty, chalky, cool, refreshing and long – but, obviously, it is less intense and less complex.

Appearance:

A pale golden straw colour

Bouquet:

The nose is pungent with scents of waxy honey, white flower, salty almond, and hints of green apple, buttery dough and shitake mushroom.

Palate:

Super tangy, spicy, pungent, salty, chalky, cool, refreshing and long – but with less complexity. A voluptuous mouth feel that must be tried!

Food Pairing:

A stunning partner with sushi or oysters on the half shell. Equally comfortable with olives, nuts, cheese and salted meats.
