La Aurora 2019
The valleys which meander through pine forested mountains and sugar fields host a fête of wildflowers in late summer. The variety of blossoms bursting into color offer up an abundance of sweet, fragrant nectar for the honey bees. They lazily meander from flower to flower, collecting new flavors and combining them into a sweet, layered honey.
Compared to La Aurora 2018
2019 Aurora follows a similar taste profile as 2018 with flower on the upper palette, tart and sweet fruit on the mid palette, and sour fruit on the finish. The essence of spring flower is still present but tends more towards earthy daffodil than super-sweet florals. White grape, tart cherry, and pear are bright mid-fruit flavors compared to a more dense apricot and candied pecan from 2018. The finish is still decidedly tart but with more powerful cranberry, rather than only slightly tart tropical fruits. Overall, the honey has a much lighter mouthfeel with a clean finish.
The meadow sky is wide open to sunshine and rain, and the dark, luxurious soil soaks in both to provide the backdrop for the abundance. New blossoms paint the landscape with wildness and abandon. The nectar contains this gala in every drop, providing honey that is multi-layered, sweet, and overflowing with flowers.
Chicken, pork, aquavit, white rum, Gruyere, and ceylon tea.
Nayarit is a lush, verdant, coastal state of Mexico. Mangrove trees hug the Pacific coastline and sweep up into the delta, teeming with wildlife.
The terrain loops up into low hills smothered in sugar cane and fruit trees, and then rises sharply up to 4,500 feet, where coffee plants hide beneath a pine canopy.
