Pale straw-green; a mown grass, hedgerow, nutty bouquet. The palate is vibrant, fresh and crunchy, with a classic dry finish, lingering long, with no phenolics, and a fresh breeze aftertaste. - James Halliday From the stellar Equipo Navazos stable, this Manzanilla comes from a 60-strong cask selection made by Navazos founders' Jesus Barquin and Eduardo Ojeda that was plucked from the production of La Guita, one of the most famous (and finest) Manzanilla producers. It is damn delicious. Those who have been working with the super rare and much pricier Navazos La Bota sherries will be delighted to have a more accessible entry-point wine to share with a wider clientele. As far as texture, flavour and persistence are concerned, it remains light years ahead from the more common, conventional, heavily filtered Manzanillas out there. The name and 'tree of life' label may be familiar to those who know the history of Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution. It remains light years ahead from the more common and conventional Manzanillas most are familiar with.

It might have more flor character even if the soil is very much present, especially in the textured palate. This has incredible quality for the price. This particular bottling felt unusually fresh for the time it had already been in bottle. It has more body and structure, and it might develop slower and longer.
