Winemaker's Notes:

#80 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Bodegas Nora's philosophy is to allow the Albariño grape to achieve maximum expression of its maturity which helps develop Nora's signature crisp style full of melon and tropical fruit flavors.

My Notes:

About Bodega Vina Nora:

Bodegas Nora is owned by Javier Alen, a well-respected Galician producer of Viña Mein and Victor Rodriguez, the former director of Vino y Gastronomia (one of the most respected wine and food magazines in Spain). It's located about 12 miles from the historic village of Tui (in Galician), Tuy (in Castilian). This village marks the borders of the sub regions O Rosal and Condado de Tea, as well as the site of one of the oldest Jewish settlements in Spain.

Alistair Gardner, an enologist from New Zealand creates Nora from the native Albariño grape using the most modern wine making technology to coax the greatest expression of the varietal and terroir upon which it is grown into the wines.
