harvest note

The 2017 growing season in Mendoza featured very low yields but very good quality from the grapes that were harvested. The season began with a very cool spring which brought some frosts in September and October. January brought considerably warmer temperatures before returning to historically average temperatures in February and March. The dry summer growing season brought optimal ripeness to the red varietals, which were harvested from early March to mid-April. The wines show good balance between maturity, ripeness, and acidity.

tasting note

Bodega Norton, with its traditional vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo, introduces a wine with red and black fruits aromas. In the palate, we can appreciate a great but balanced structure with acidity and freshness which results in a harmonious combination of the best grapes from Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza.
