Batch from 2022. Fresh bright aromas of rose petals, violet, carnation, coconut, guava, and zapote. The palate is thick with notes of vanilla bean, maple, honey, cooked butter, hempseed, a touch of fresh mint, and smoked brisket. I’m not familiar with this producer in Minas, but this Marteno is really nice, with touches of clay but nothing overpowering the agave.
