WINE REVIEW: 2015 Nora da Neve, Rias Baixas, Spain ($30)

by Andrew Chalk

Appearance: Light straw;

Nose: Salinity, lemon, pineapple

Taste: Worthy body. Medium-plus acid. Grippy phenolics.

Finish: Tropical fruit

This 100% albariño is unusual in that it was fermented in oak. The near universal norm in Rias Baixas is stainless steel. The application is gentle, creating a subtle effect of greater body and more complex flavors. This is one of the most interesting Rias Baixas wines that I have tasted and, despite being more expensive than conventional Rias Baixas albariño, should be considered a good value.
