2019 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2019 vintage will go down as one of the best vintages of the decade with red wines showing outstanding quality. In general, the wines of the vintage should be classified as very good to excellent quality. After a notably cool and dry spring, the cool temperatures and dry conditions continued throughout the growing season, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine and ripen 1-3 weeks longer than normal. This prolonged growing season allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, with the cool temperatures and dry conditions producing lower yields. The result was a great balance between aromatic expression and concentration of color and tannins. The wines display elegance and balance with fresh acidity and superb aging potential.
Tasting Note
Norton Rosado de Malbec presents a pale salmon pink color, with floral and herbal aromas. It is a well-balanced wine, with a refreshing acidity, a delicate texture and a pleasant finish.
Food Pairing
Perfect with fresh seafood, seasonal fruit salads, or as an aperitif.
