Bodega Norton Torrontés Mendoza 2010
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 expose the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the black-skinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds. Vineyard Norton has 680 hectares of vineyard in production, minutely mapped and divided into parcels so that the individual varieties, clones and training methods suit the soil in each. Minimal treatments are used in the vineyards, which are run along virtually organic lines. All the grapes are hand picked. The juice was fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel for fourteen days; temperature was held at 16-18°C. The wine was bottled early to maximize freshness and varietal expression. This is a sophisticated, dry, elegant rendition of this aromatic grape variety, combining minerality with white peach and floral notes such as rose and jasmine.
Very tart and crisp. Flavors of granny smith apples and pears. Pairing with baked lemon cod, bok choy and basmati rice.
A fragrant, aromatic pale gold with greenish tints- a perfect summer quaffer at a great price. It’s low in alcohol, dry, crisp, with enough acidity to be well-balance. The taste is much milder than the initial aromas would indicate. The palate has green apple, tangerine, and peach.
