This tiny micro-lot from Las Alasitas in Bolivia, was produced by Pedro Rodriguez. Alasitas was planted in 2014, and sits at 1,600-1,650masl. The high elevation slows maturation of the cherries - which translates into more sugars developed inside the cherries, hence a sweeter cup. The cherries were picked and processed on the same day at the Rodriguez family's Buena Vista Wet Mil.. It was pulped and then fermented in water for 40 hours before slowly drying in the green house.
You will find intensely floral and tea rose aromas, mandarin, complex acidity, and a maple syrup-like sweetness to balance the cup. Please enjoy!
