Puerta Del Aire harvest

During my latest visit to La Altena, Carlos and his team were busy harvesting the next field for Ocho, Puerta del Aire:

Puerta del Aire field, located near the La Alteña distillery

The red patched indicate ripeness in the plant, which usually means higher sugar content
The jimadores hard at work in the fields
The plants are around 7 years old and the piñas in this field are much larger than normal, some weighing up to 100 kgs.
