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 subregions, 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.

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, rushing white grapes in early and resulting in tension and freshness.
Tasting Note
Greenish yellow with golden hues. Fresh aromas of green apples and tropical fruit, with a juicy fresh grapefruit and hints of pineapple character on the palate. Balanced acidity that highlights the freshness.
