At first whiff you may not be impressed; the nose offers abnormal butterscotch and honey. But once you get into the wine you’ll encounter feminine orange, lemon, melon and custard flavors sitting on the plumpest, most comfortable palate in Galicia. Purity of fruit is by far the wine’s leading attribute.
An Albariño with some body and complexity, Nora’s single-vineyard, barrel-aged wine is definitely an oaky one. It has lots of wood dust, vanilla and lemon curd on the nose. The flavor profile is led by apples and cinnamon (from the oak), and it flows well. Not a sticky, overoaked load; instead it has balance and quasi-Burgundian feel.
