About this mezcal
Siembra Metl Don Mateo Cupreata is made with 100% agave Cupreata. The terroir of Michoacan is characterized by its rivers; the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt with many active, dormant and extinct volcanoes; and the variety of forests from conifer to tropical. The Vieyra Vinata is cut into the side of a hill in the steep highlands above Morelia in the Rio Balsas region surrounded by temperate evergreen forest. The high-altitude climate is characterized by sandy-soil and moderate rainfall. The forest floor is soft with pine needles, moss and a red sandy clay; all of which are influences in the flavor profile of Don Mateo Joven Cupreata. The pungent, smoky-sweet smells of the agave hit the nose like herbaceous, wet earth. Then, like afternoon in the vinata the palate warms with a silky texture; the flavors of roasting agaves and the resinous pine bark. The finish bursts in different areas of the mouth with fresh cut agaves and the meadows of Pino Bonito. This mezcal is rested in glass for 6 months before being hand-bottled.

Siembra Metl Don Mateo is mostly produced by Emilio Vieyra in Pino Bonito, Michoacán. Emilio’s distilling practices go back 5 generations. The Vieyra family cultivates their agaves and produces their spirit between the Rio Balsas basin and the Eje Neo-volcanico de la Sierra Madre del Sur. The fields are at an average of 7,500 ft and the Vinata where the spirit is roasted, macerated, fermented, and distilled sits at 7,000 ft. Check your bottle for details as they tend to vary slightly from batch to batch. The Siembra Metl brand also features some rare special edition releases from other producers, and they bottle tequila under the renowned Siembra Azul and Siembra Valles labels.
