Eladio Pineiro 2016 Albariño Amodiño
Ever the restless one, Eladio conceived the original notion that aging this wine on the lees of THREE vintages (2014 and 2016, in addition to its own), might be interesting. And was he ever right! The textural gains are really remarkable, and yet the overall impression on the palate is slender, saline and fine, after the gorgeous, shimmering, floral nose. “Amodiño” means in the Galician dialect something like “slow down and savour” – an excellent piece of advice to appreciate the myriad attractions of this utterly original wine. It is the only one of Eladio’s wines to see time in wood, and to be bottled under cork.
