Bodega Norton

Reserva Cabernet Franc 2019

Region: Argentina / Mendoza / Uco Valley
Grapes: 100% Cabernet Franc

The Reserva line is characterized by its elegance and complexity. In order to achieve these qualities, 30-to-50-year-old vines are managed to low yields. Then, the wine develops and gains complexity by further aging in carefully selected French oak barrels. Finally, balance is achieved after a 10-month bottle aging.

harvest note

The 2019 vintage will go down as one of the best vintages of the decade with red wines showing outstanding quality. In general, the wines of the vintage should be classified as very good to excellent quality. After a notably cool and dry spring, the cool temperatures and dry conditions continued throughout the growing season, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine and ripen 1-3 weeks longer than normal. This prolonged growing season allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, with the cool temperatures and dry conditions producing lower yields. The result was a great balance between aromatic expression and concentration of color and tannins. The wines display elegance and balance with fresh acidity and superb aging potential.

tasting note

This exclusive Cabernet Franc displays wild freshness with a hint of mint and spiced notes. Its complexity, bold structure and velvety finish convey the extreme conditions of the terroir.
