Norton's Select line captures the spirit of Mendoza and of Norton’s high-altitude vineyards (3,000+ feet). A selection of sites from the Lujan de Cuyo and Uco Valley sub-regions, it is distinguished by its fruity style and classic elegance. It expresses the richness and concentration of Lujan de Cuyo's clay rich soils, balanced with the acid and structure of the gravelly and sometimes calcareous Uco Valley. Norton celebrates being pioneers in Mendoza since 1895, nestled in the foothills of the Andes.

2022 vintage
Harvest Note
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 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
Tasting Note
Deep red and violet color. On the nose the most evident aromas are the plums and figs which deliver a sensation of sweetness. Elegant on the palate, good body, round and consistent.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with red meats, Italian flavored pasta and grilled vegetables.
