Saca de October 2022. This iconic bottling can trace its ancestry right back to the first ever La Bota wine: La Bota de Amontillado No.1. Since that time, we have been regaled by those Sanlúcar wines numbered 9, 37, 58 and 95. This time there is a new source. Barquín explains that for La Bota 117, they travelled from Sanlúcar to Montilla—"looking for something new and because we had to take advantage of the opportunity of a spectacularly fine and lively Amontillado, delicious, fluid and at the same time with much character.”

Sourced from the venerable Bodega of Pérez Barquero, it is a wine of more than 20 years of age from Altos de Moriles. The solera started life as a Fino and during its first oxidative stage in a prestigious winery in Lucena. This was followed by its definitive period of aging at the Bodega of Pérez Barquero. In the Montilla tradition, the wine has never been fortified, and its alcohol content clocks in below 18% which contributes to its freshness on the palate.

It’s a wonderfully gastronomic wine that harmonises with a wide variety of dishes, as well as being a delicious glass in itself. It is best enjoyed in a large white wine glass at around 11ºC and 13ºC. An excellent aperitif, it also works beautifully with powerful meat-based entrées and is also a surprisingly good accompaniment to spicy Asian food and, of course, a wide variety of cheeses (both hard and soft).

Reviews

“The NV La Bota de Amontillado Montilla 117 is a new Amontillado from Montilla-Moriles that was never bottled before. Selected from the cellars of Pérez-Barquero, the wine is between 25 to 30 years of average age, not fortified but bottled at 20% alcohol from pure concentration from evaporation, as the Fino that is the base for this wine was never fortified, which is the tradition in Montilla. It's a medium-age Amontillado with textbook characteristics and the evolution of the Fino Amontillado but with some 10 to 12 years more. It's nutty, pungent, intense and sapid, with a saline, iodine twist.”
