Excellent. Let it breathe for about 30 minutes. It mellows and is real tasty. In any case, the wine is really tasty and has a great aroma. WS rated 90 and best before 2018. Outstanding with chicken.
This is a decent red at a great price. The previous review is right on the mark with their comments.
Edmund James Palmer Norton first set eyes on Mendoza countryside during the construction of a train line that joined Mendoza and Chile. Very impressed by the terroir, he founded Bodega Norton, south of the Mendoza River, with a plantation of vines imported from France.
The Austrian businessman Gernot Langes-Swarovski bought Bodega Norton after sensing the great potential of Argentina to influence the world scene. Struck by the beauty of the area and the optimal conditions for growing grapes, he chose Bodega Norton because it was the only traditional winery surrounded by its own vineyard.
Gernot Langes-Swarovski’s son, Michael Halstrick, initiated a new phase, aided by significant investments, modernization and growth, that would prepare them for their big international expansion. During the 90’s Bodega Norton started exporting high quality wines, becoming one of the first wineries to develop export markets.
