Bodega Norton

Barrel Select Malbec

Region: Argentina / Mendoza

The Barrel Select Line expresses both the fruit attributes, such as freshness and sweetness, along with the smoky influences of oak, which add to the wine’s complexity. This is accomplished by aging a portion of the wine in French oak barrels and then blending with wines aged in stainless steel. As a result, a delicate balance between fruit and oak is obtained, in which the scents and flavors of each blend are combined with the oak’s toasted notes. 50% of the Malbec is aged in French oak before blending.
