2018 Asi se va las Estrellas Tinto  -  La Carrodilla

The Carrodilla Estate

- This estate represents the first certified organic and biodynamic vineyards in Mexico.

 - All of the monovarietal wines are made from estate fruit.

- Their southwestern facing vineyard site is located 11 miles up the Valle de Guadalupe from the Pacific at an elevation of 1,000 ft.

- They are one of the first wineries in Mexico to make a fully certified organic and biodynamic wine.

- Their organic certifications come from the USDA and CCOF.

- Their biodynamic certification comes from IMO, with a second certification from Demeter planned to take effect in 2020.

- To visit Carrodilla is to visit a true working farm, only part of the project is growing grapes and making wine. 

Total production: 34.5 acres under vine, 7 wines, 3,500 cases

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    A robust and layered Bordeaux blend built in a forthcoming New World style that lays it all out on the table. Cassis and blackberry, black currant and plums provide prelude to a wine whose lusciousness and silky texture read like Christmas dinner next to a cozy fireplace - all of the warmth and embrace one could hope for.

    A wine normally reserved only for the family behind the Carrodilla estate, a few cases were made available to the general public and only 2 cases were allocated to the US market.
