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.
Early harvest, healthy grapes and vines, ideal temperatures, deep wine concentration and an anticipated end of the harvest season. The 2020 harvest began around September/October after a mild winter, low amounts of snow and some late spring frosts. December and January days were very warm with scarce precipitation which caused the grapes to mature early. Grape harvest occurred earlier than usual this year, in January. 2020 was a truly healthy year both regarding the fruit and the vineyards. We experienced a decrease in quantity but a significant rise in quality. Regarding the wines, this vintage will display concentrated, delicious and memorable wines.
