“Blending Malbec with 20% Cabernet Franc (back down from 30% in 2012) and 10% Merlot, this is a superb bottling that takes this icon red to a new level. Still very young, but with lots of gas in the tank, it combines flavours of graphite, cedarwood, blackberry and damson with very well judged oak and sculpted tannins.”

Nortons flagship wine is a selection of their very best vineyard parcels. It shows great depth on the nose, with dark, brooding aromas of toast, mocha and rich black fruit. The palate is dense and opulent, with impressive concentration of fruit and yet a deftly woven structure, leading to spicy complexity on the finish.

As Bodega Norton´s icon wine, Gernot Langes was named after its owner Gernot Langes Swarovski. This wine is made from a careful selection of the finest Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes, picked from Bodega Norton’s oldest vineyards. The unique blend is aged in French oak barrels for 16 months and then in bottle for another 14 months. Each of Gernot Langes’s 4,988 numbered bottles expresses the spirit and vision of our winery.

Closure Cork
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 Mendozas Luján de Cuyo district. At 900-1,100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also exposes 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

Gernot Langes is selected from vines between fifty and eighty years old, growing in vineyards at up to 1,100 metres above sea level. Grapes are hand picked and selected into twenty-kilo baskets.


Winery

The must was given five days cold maceration at 8-10ºC, then fermented with selected yeasts for seven days at 28ºC. The wine spent 25-30 days on skins before racking to 100% new French oak barrels for eighteen months ageing. It spent a further fourteen months in bottle before release.
