Producer
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 900-1,100 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
Located in Mendoza at 1,100 metres above sea level, Finca La Colonia is Bodega Norton’s main estate vineyard. Grapes for the Colección range are hand-picked from vines that are at least fifteen years old.

Winery
Fermentation with selected yeasts lasted for seven days and was followed by a fifteen-day maceration period and a 100% natural malolactic fermentation. Fifty percent of the wine was aged for twelve months in first- and second-use French oak barrels.

Taste
Deep red colour with violet hues. Aromas of ripe red fruit, cassis and black pepper, with more fruit and a touch of spice on the palate. Elegant and smooth with a long finish.
