Winemaker's Notes

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. It is a great gamble to keep the grapes on the vine as long as possible to maximize maturity because of the constant threat of autumn rains. The particular location for these vineyards is unique because this area of Rias Baixas receives more sun light and the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic provides a moderating influence despite the fact that the vineyards are on the same latitude as Massachusetts in the United States and the Miño River provides early morning fog to cool the warm summer days.

Although Albariño is an Atlantic varietal, it loves the sun. The grape only reaches its maximum potential when it is harvested fully ripe producing a medium to full bodied, refreshing white wine.

this albarino is a great sipping wine but has enough body to stand up to food, great with summer pasta salads and fish
