Eladio Pineiro 'Envidia Cochina Tête de Cuvée' Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain 2017
"Pale, green-tinged yellow. A highly complex bouquet evokes ripe citrus fruits, white flowers, candied ginger and smoky minerals, along with a hint of anise that emerges as the wine opens up. Shows very good depth as well as energy to its sappy Meyer lemon, quince and honeysuckle flavors, which are braced by a core of juicy acidity. Shows sharp delineation and mineral bite on the clinging finish, which leaves a refreshingly bitter orange pith note behind."
