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. The Rosado, made from Malbec grapes, offers a refreshing traditional rosé profile with fresh, bright acidity allowing for a clean, crisp finish.
The 2021 harvest was a successful one despite a challenging start. Mid-January temperatures were low and fell again in February into March. The summer temperatures were 6% below the historical average in Mendoza. Due to the colder weather, the ripening process was slowed causing the grapes to have a lower concentration with higher acidity. Even with the colder temperatures, the harvest was surprisingly a healthy one. Winemakers note that they've seen a good expression of fruit, balance, tangy acidity, mild alcohol and complex textures.
A pale salmon pink color, with floral and herbal aromas. It is well-balanced with refreshing acidity.
