Characteristics of Envidia Cochina Albariño

Envidia Cochina Albariño is a young white wine made by Eladio Piñeiro in the D.O. Rías Baixas (Galicia) with the Albariño variety.

Founder of Bodegas Mar de Frades before it became part of the Rías Baixas Denomination of Origin, Eladio Piñeiro is known in the sector as an entrepreneurial winemaker who innovates in both production and presentation. After leaving the winery due to his partner’s illness, years later he set up this new project making very limited productions with their own soul.

Envidia Cochina Albariño comes from unique terroirs located in the Salnés Valley (Pontevedra). These are vines aged over 30 years old planted on sandy loam soils and cultivated according to biodynamic principles and following lunar and cosmic cycles. When the grapes reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested manually.

In the winery, the Envy Cochina Albariño grapes go through a selective process where they macerate for between eight and ten hours. Spontaneous fermentation then begins with native yeasts at a low temperature with prolonged aging on its own lees for 6 months. Finally, a coupage is made with 15% of the wine from the previous vintage.

Envidia Cochina Albariño is an Albariño made as it would have been in the past. A fresh, elegant and broad white wine from the past that is genuine through and through. The bottle label imitates a comic strip made with thermochromic ink. In other words, the colour will tell you whether the wine is at its best. Deliciously surprising!

Tasting notes Envidia Cochina Albariño

Envidia Cochina Albariño 2018 is a white wine with abundant tears revealing a complex nose of white and yellow fruits, white flowers, salty notes and herbaceous notes. On the palate it is broad, oily and glyceric. A wine with an elegant mid-palate, balanced acidity and a long and persistent aftertaste.
The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard. The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Eladio Piñeiro

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
