Argentina / Mendoza
Paying tribute to the founding year of Bodega Norton, the 1895 Colección wines capture the spirit of Argentina. Each wine in the collection showcases fresh, approachable styles meant for everyday enjoyment. The Chardonnay features ripe, round apple and citrus notes coupled with minerality from the soils of the Andes foothills.
2022 was a nail-biting vintage that proved rewarding for great winemaking teams like Bodega Norton's. A dry cool spring set the tone for drought, and historic frosts reduced potential yields by nearly 25%, all leading to concentration. Nearly the entire annual rainfall came in two weeks, rushing white grapes in early and resulting in tension and freshness.
Golden yellow with greenish tones. Green apples and tropical fruit on the palate. Well structured, round and balanced, with fine finish.
