Maria Zelaya Aguirre
April 2017 2018
Maria Zelaya is the third generation owner and manager of Hacienda Carmona in Antigua, Guatemala. The farm has been in Maria Zelaya’s family since 1910, when it was purchased by Maria’s grandfather, Luis Pedro Aguirre. Pulcal, her on-site mill, lends its name to the top lots she produces every year. Our 2017 selection has a profound depth of sweetness that resonates with poached pear notes underpinned by a marzipan sweetness and browning sugar base.
