Tasting Notes

100% Sauvignon Blanc, Organically Farmed

Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico

2020 Vintage Notes: Full expression on the nose and in the mouth of a Sauvignon Blanc of the highest pedigree, if this is what we have to look forward to from Mina Penelope in the years to come, you are going to want to get on the Mina train and never leave it. Bravo. While this wine was sourced from three vineyard sites it marks the first harvest from the young Sauvignon Blanc vines of the Mina estate. 

The Mina Penélope Estate

- Wines are primarily made from organically grown estate vineyards tucked into a tight fold on the valley wall of Valle de Guadalupe. They source from additional select vineyards as needed from vintage to vintage. All are organically maintained. 

- Production is minuscule; everything is done by hand by a husband and wife team who are the definition of the passion one finds in the small growers of the region.

- Vineyard site is 15 years old and Nathaniel Malagon who tends the vineyards comes from one of the oldest grape growing families in Valle de Guadalupe.

- Winemaker Veronica Santiago is one of the most well-respected winemakers in the valley and her pallet has shown itself in blind tastings to be one of the best. The wines she and Nathaniel are making are at once elegant, informed, and remarkably rustic old world in style. These wines follow closely the natural wine making style championed in the Loire and Saone valleys and emulate closely the body compositions and flavor profiles of the wines made in this area with minimal intervention.

Total production: 8 wines, 800 cases
