Product: Page

The Nobleza Gaucha red bag (despalillada; sin palos; without stems) is the lighter version of the blue bag (con palos; with stems). Naturally, this mate is more robust and malty.

More appropriate than butter-smooth (as in the blue bag of Nobleza Gaucha), this Argentine mate, packing gaucho malt and richness swagger, is fittingly bitter-smooth. Consistent bold flavors with minimal edginess makes this stolid varietal almost stable to a fault.

With a light body and silky-soft mouthfeel, there’s good round and velvety dimension across the highly tenable earthy base. Savor the malty assam black tea, woody hay, and smoky-sweet aromas.

The cut shows interplay between robust green classical Argentine varieties — large leaves layered with moderate powder — and typical gaucho varieties with scanty additions of splinter palos (stems) and a moderate amount of dust.

Reminiscent of Kraus Gaucho married to Mate Factor, I’m hard-pressed to categorically call this mate a true classical Argentine mate—the whispers of smoke and malt cross this sin palo (without stems) variety into gaucho territory.

Minimal astringency and sharpness combined with broad earthy and woody depth, makes for an interesting hybrid flavor profile, spanning across the bright green planes classical Argentine and dark rich Brazilian gaucho terroir, expressing oats, clay, earth, and sweet dough.
