Wine Description:
Adega Familiar Eladio Piñeiro's Envidiacochina (Tête de Cuvée) is a distinct and characterful Albariño from the Rías Baixas denomination in Galicia, Spain. The Tête de Cuvée, indicating a top-tier selection, reflects the winemaker's meticulous attention to detail and the passion Eladio Piñeiro imbues in his limited-production wines. Sourced from old vines and nurtured through biodynamic practices, the wine represents the purest expression of Albariño, bolstered by aging on lees that enhances its texture and complexity. Piñeiro’s Envidiacochina is an exemplar of the height that Rías Baixas wines can achieve, balancing the varietal's inherent freshness with additional depth and sophistication.

Wine Expert Note:

Adega Familiar Eladio Piñeiro's Envidiacochina is a luxurious take on Albariño, presenting a pale, golden hue with greenish reflections, signaling both richness and vitality. The nose offers an intoxicating bouquet of ripe pear, crisp apple, and zesty lemon, with floral overtones and a salient minerality reminiscent of the Atlantic influence. On the palate, the wine is textured and layered, with the lees aging imparting a creamy, almost brioche-like quality that contrasts beautifully with the bracing acidity and saline snap typical of the grape. Hints of stone fruit and a touch of spice add to the complexity, leading to a persistent, elegant finish that beautifully marries the fruit and mineral elements. This Tête de Cuvée stands as a proud representation of the craftsmanship and terroir-driven focus of Adega Familiar Eladio Piñeiro.
