Lo Tengo 2005

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 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. Grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard situated at 950 metres above sea level, with vines aged between thirty and fifty years. The fruit is hand-harvested into twenty-kilo baskets, and the berries hand-selected. This is a ripe, succulent wine offering aromas of violets, spice and tobacco. A round, mouthfilling palate, flavours of berry fruit and a persistent finish.

At Norton Winery, we are convinced that wine is born in the vineyard, that is the reason why, the experience and professionalism of our agriculturist engineer and enologist combine in our wines, jointly with the knowledge of our people and their hand-craft spirit, together with state-of-the-art technology. Our vineyards produce a wide range of noble grape varieties, such as Malbec and Torrontés. Red varieties include Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Barbera, Sangiovese, Syrah and Pinot Noir. White varieties include Torrontés, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillón, Chenin Blanc and Riesling. After the work executed throughout the whole year on the farms, there comes the time for harvesting. The grapes selected reach the Winery where a series of hand-craft stages take place, resulting in the delicate wine we enjoy. Visits by appointment. Read less

As a big fan of malbecs in general, I was very disappointed in this wine. It tasted far too sour (and I don't think it was off). I even gave it some time to breathe, but that did not help. I ended up pouring it out. I would not recommend. I'm giving it 1 star simply for the unique, holographic label.
