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.

Talking About the Wine:
- Wine Spectator Magazine, April '17 gave 89 points to 2015 Envidiacochina. "This white shows a deep golden color, with strong notes of ginger, hazelnut and dried herb. There's a core of pear and almond, but the style is more savory than fruity. Firm acidity keeps this focused."
-Wine Spectator Magazine, Nov '15 gave 89 points to 2013 Envidiacochina. "This silky white delivers juicy pear and blanched almond flavors, accented by floral, mint and briny notes that add complexity while remaining focused and harmonious."
