Winemaker’s Notes
Grapes: 100% Albariño, average age of the vineyards 30 years, biodynamic for 8 years, located at Salnés Valley (Rias Baixas).

Aging: 6 months aging on fine lees in stainless steel with weekly batonnage. Then this wine is blended with 15% of Frore del Carme wine from previous vintage that has 12.5 months aging.

Residual sugar: Less that 2 g/l.

Taste: Very elegant, tastes of fruit syrup and balsamic from its aging on lees with licorice and fennel remembrances, excellent acidity, soft, fresh, unctuous and tasty. Aftertaste is long with a mineral touch and occasional excellent bitter undertones. Very greedy.

Color: Lemon yellow with glints of green, neat and shiny.

 

Importer’s Notes
The name means “the envy of the worm”, the pithy Spanish way of conveying that “I want to be in your shoes when good things are happening”. This is the “second” wine, which Eladio resisted making for years, but debuted with the 2011 vintage. It spends six months on the lees in stainless steel, with weekly batonnage, and is then blended with 15% Frore de Carmen from the previous vintage and held a year in the bottle before release. Super-charged Albariño with honey and tropical fruit, but showing also the lees contact with an almost balsamic sweetness and a mineral finish.
