Gernot Langes 2016 Bodega Norton
€ 84,10 (in. BTW)
The cool 2016 produced a completely different 2016 Gernot Langes. It was produced with grapes from the Valle de Uco, with a different blend and different vinification. This 2016 is a blend of 50% Malbec from Gualtallary, 40% Cabernet Franc from Altamira and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Los Árboles. It fermented in used rolling barrels with indigenous yeasts and had a long and soft vinification. This has to be the finest and most elegant red I have tasted from Norton. It's super tasty, balanced and has great freshness. The varieties are very nicely integrated, and there are fine-grained and chalky tannins and a supple, long and tasty finish. 5,000 bottles were filled in January 2018, and it still feels very young and energetic.
