Norton Privada Red Blend 2021

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby ​​red in color, with excellent aromatic complexity that presents notes of ripe fruits, spices and coffee. In the mouth it is unctuous, with excellent concentration, and presents itself as a superb and special oenological diamond. This wine shone for generations, and after having been enjoyed exclusively for a few years, the Swarosvki family wanted to make it available to the most select palates in the world. David Bonomi, Winemaker.

Lavish plump blackcurrants, blackberries and perfumed violets encased in a smooth backbone of deliciously creamy vanilla oak. Seriously concentrated and intriguing with an opulent leathery texture, velvety soft tannins and a lengthy tobacco-laden finish. Outstanding!

A consistently outstanding red blend featuring malbec, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. The cocoa powder and spice notes from the oak are adequate and certainly just supplementary to the healthy core of fresh, peppery blackberries and dark cherries with a touch of graphite. Medium- to full-bodied with firm, dusty tannins, showing fresh, intense black and blue fruit with violets and dark chocolate lingering in a lengthy finish. A great value. Vegan. Drink or hold.

There’s better integration of the oak and better balance, harmony and elegance in the 2021 Privada Family Blend. It was produced with 40% Malbec and 30% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from vineyards in Luján de Cuyo. It feels very integrated, with each variety adding aromas and flavors and coming through as complex and powerful. This has to be one of the finest vintages for this bottling. Maybe they used less new barrels…

Winemaker Notes

This exclusive high-end blend was born as a personal request from the Swarovski family to the winery’s winemaker with the aim of creating the best wine to enjoy among intimates and entertain friends. Its grapes come from the oldest vineyards of the winery, between 50 and 90 years old, located in Luján de Cuyo, within the La Colonia, Lunlunta and Agrelo estates.
A truly unique wine, from a special selection of the best Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, resulting in an aromatic, complex and elegant blend.
