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. This Malbec features a bold, yet friendly aromatic and fruit profile that is inviting and easy to drink.
2022 was a nailbiting 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 in the early fall. Cool and dry days in late March and early April wrapped up the red wine harvest and resulted in wines that will have the acid and tannin structures for longevity.
Deep red color, with violet hints. Sweet and spicy aromas reminiscent of black pepper. Ripe red fruit on the palate, with smooth, harmonious tannins.
