La Bota 100 de Manzanilla Pasada results from combining the "Bota Punta" together with the other two best casks of the 1/15 solera, from which all the editions of "bota punta and bota NO" come since number 20 of the series. At the time of saca the wine from these three casks must have an estimated average age of around 14 years. A characteristic that contributes to making this wine unique and giving it, in this case together with hints of nuts and an incipient hint of caramel, an unmatched biological background character (intense and steely salty sensations in the mouth) is that the casks are almost full. “Hard”, well above the usual 5/6 level in the Marco. In this way, the yeast layer (very weakened by age and the lack of nutrients in the wine) of these vessels is not so extensive and can be maintained with the contribution of the few periodic sprays, fulfilling its function of barrier between the wine. and the intensely oxidative effect of air. On the other hand, the weakness and small surface of the flower does not manage to maintain an intense effect on chamomile, which shows elegant oxidative notes.
It is a complex and powerful wine, with balanced freshness and elegant aromatic notes that give it an unmistakable personality. It accompanies with great versatility a variety of dishes, from the most gratifying (seafood stews and rice, beef jerky) to the most complicated (eggs with boletus, scrambled eggs with tagarninas, Extremadura cheese cakes). It is recommended to serve at 12º C, always in a wide glass.
