Norton, Barrel Select - 2017

Norton, Barrel Select - 2017

Norton naturally has a large amount of malic acid compared with other wine grape varieties. Carbonic maceration naturally metabolizes about half of this acid. This process also produces a distinctive aroma in the wine not unlike pink bubblegum and banana. However, this character dissipates with age in the bottle. It also produces a rich mouth feel. Carbonic Maceration is most famously known as the processing technique for the Beaujolais Nouveau wines of France. It has wondeful aromas of dark fruits, cloves, and leather. On the palate, currants, mocha and plum shine through and leave a lingering smooth finish.

Food Pairing Notes
Norton Barrel Select showcases the fruit characters of Norton and pairs best with red meat. Cheeses such as our Maid Marian pair beautifully. Flank steak on focaccia bread with melted Maid Marian cheese and raspberry jam is a good pairing along with Filet Mignon, garlic mashed potatoes, and haricot vert. Also you can't go wrong with Chicken Parmigiana over angel hair pasta.
