Ocho Single Estate 2017 Los Nopales Plata Tequila
The rancho “Los Nopales” at 2070 meters altitude, belonged to Carlos Camarena’s grandfather, Don Felipe Camarena. It is surrounded by other agave fields, however, on its east side there are wild prickle pear cactuses forming a fence, hence the name “Los Nopales”. The average sugar content was 27.5 % and the age of the plants was 6 years and 9 months at harvest. This is the first time in 35 years this land was used to grow agave.
Aromas of pineapple, green banana, orange blossom, sea pool minerality, chamomile blossoms, marzipan, freshly cut grass, and river stone minerality. Flavors of sweet yellow fruit, spearmint, cut grass, earthy, chamomile, and flan caramel.
