Equipo Navazos is a group of friends who have united over a shared passion for the treasures of Jerez, Sanlucar, El Puerto and Montilla. They work closely with local producers to identify high quality butts of sherry with finesse and complexity which they then bottle in small quantities. Equipo has also collaborated with other winemakers including Dirk Niepoort and Sergi Colet to develop some intriguing and characterful wines from Jerez and sparkling wines from Penedes. This wine is made from the Palomino grape grown on Machardnudo Alto vineyards in Jerez. The wine is then fermented in 600l sherry butts making use only of wild yeast and aged without fortification under a veil of flor for some four to five months, thanks to the other equally wild yeasts that take control of the butt immediately after fermentation has finish.
This collaboration between Equipo and Niepoort is a truly unique wine with sherry like aromas, limestone and chalk notes. A wine full of character, vibrant, fresh and mineral, showing the pure expression of chalky soil. The perfect match for all sorts of tapas, showing it best always with food. Oysters, clams and seafood, smoked ham and strong cheeses.
