La Canada (the creek) is located around 12.5 km northeast of Los Alambiques Distillery at 2,115 meters average elevation in between two fields already used for Ocho production in past years (La Latilla on its north side & La Laja at the south), gently sloping towards the south. This piece of land is full of small flat rocks, often used for building fences. Its east border runs alongside a creek (thus the name) which carries water only at the rainy season, with cedar, ash and oak trees at its sides.
Nose: Fresh and citric, strawberries, green guavas, rosemary, cooked agave and hits of pepper. Very mineral and aromatic.
Palate: Toast bread, pink pepper, orange peel, anise, peppermint and rosemary.
