StyleFull BodiedRegionMendozaABV15%Vintage2019Named Altura (height) to reflect the unique high altitude growing conditions that allow the grapes to ripen to perfection while retaining fresh acidity.
The Altura Malbec displays a remarkable intensity of fruit, combining flavours of damsons and mulberries, offset by complex mineral and earthy notes. Aged in second use French oak barrels, the wine is rounded with soft, velvety tannins and delicate spicy notes on the finish.
A stunning wine from Bodega Norton, who recently celebrated its 125th Anniversary!

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.
