Altura White Blend

Region: Argentina / Mendoza / Valle de Uco

Altura means altitude, height above sea level, a combination of daytime solar intensity and atmospheric pressure. Altura was inspired by the connection between soil and elevation and microclimate in a special vineyard located in Uco Valley in Mendoza. This white blend combines three varietals to capture the brilliance of Bodega Norton's high altitude vineyards.
