Bodega Norton, Lote Negro, Mendoza, Argentina, 2015
(at Victoria House, London, 18 Oct 2017)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2026
From winemaker David Bonomi (taking over from Jorge Riccitelli) comes this 'new baby' to the Norton portfolio, the first 100% Uco Valley wine. It's powerful but compact, showing dense, inky bramble fruit, plums and wood spice from the 16 months ageing in new French oak barrels. Supple tannins and vibrant acidity.
