This 2018 Cosecha bottling is made from over-ripe Highland pinto Blue Weber agave grown at 5,019′ elevation in the rugged, extremely mineral-laden caliche soil of Vista Hermosa, Micohoacán, the southernmost region within the D.O. This area’s calcium carbonate-suffused, mineral-rich terroir is evident in Tequila Fuenteseca Cosecha 2018’s fantastically-heightened minerality that beautifully accents the pure agave flavors of sweet, cooked yams and warm baking spices.
