Bodega Norton Malbec 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. Ten years later, Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district. At 900-1100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also exposes the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the blackskinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, foodfriendly reds. This lovely New World Cabernet offers aromas of ripe fruit: plums, blackberries and strawberries. It has a very good structure, balanced and round, with a long finish.

First tried w/pork roast lunch--just tastes acidic and tart. Later, with cold pork and yams, not bad. Distinct tart flavor. Nothing special for me. Acidic, like a French Rose or Beaujolais

Dark rouge; ready to drink; not too dry; notes of vanila and strawberry; equilibrated acidity. Very good indeed.

Pale red in color. Red fruit, cherry and raspberry aromas. Fresh with a pleasant finish.
