Ocho Tequila Blanco (La Ladera 2021) 50cl

TequilaMatchM`ker Rating: 89

Review from Remy Newland:

'2021 La Ladera | Nose: Sweet and spicy start. Minerals and earthiness. Pineapple and citrus. Cinnamon and nutmeg. A spritz of grapefruit zest. Mature agave aromas oozing natural richness. Flavour: The aromas seemed airy and ebullient. The flavours weigh in with more depth and complexity. Spice, cinnamon and pepper on the front palate. The spice warmth spreads mid-palate, moving to the back palate. The back palate is host to coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and ancho pepper notes. The buttery sweetness has a dark quality to it: perhaps palm sugar, piloncillo, or light molasses? Gobs of light coloured tree fruit marrying seamlessly into the blend. Coats the mouth nicely and has a balanced, pleasing finish.'

Ocho designates both the year of production and the precise field from which the agaves are sourced, so each batch takes on different characteristics, making each vintage collectable.

Made with agave from the La Ladera Rancho (the Hillside field) which faces West and has an average 8% slope. This rancho has a total area of 86 acre with an altitude between 2,100 to 2,150 meters above sea level.

The land is a rocky slope with shallow red mineral soil and low to medium fertility. Due to such conditions, the agave plants have relatively low average weight. Nevertheless, the sugar level is high, above 30% of the total weight, due to the stressful conditions in which the plant grows during its full life cycle.

Produced by the Camarena family in conjunction with Tomas Estes (Cafe Pacifico, La Perla). A luscious, full-textured white Tequila, with a beautiful agave flavour.
