“Los Fresnos” is situated between 2068m and 2078m above sea level and is rich in iron oxide giving the soil a rich red appearance. The average piña age was about 7 years at harvest and as they were collected in late April when there was a bit of a drought it resulted in agaves with an above average sugar and mineral concentration.

Tasting Notes

"This expression has a much higher salinity in both aroma and palate which had me thinking of the ocean. It’s not quite like licking a salt block, but close. There’s a greater cooked agave taste than their “Las Pomez” Plata bottling along with a bit of sweet baking dough. The palate briefly shows black pepper and has a nice burn like you get with capsaicin. Slight cacao is found on the finish. I personally prefer this Plata over the “Las Pomez” Plata as this is more assertive and not as sweet."
