The vineyard at Norton Estate was established in 1997, on some soil types that are almost foreign to the Wimmera, with buckshot sandy loams over deep red sandy clay and fragmented limestone through the clay layers. The vineyard also has good elevation and is frost free. This elevation ensures an ideal climate, with warm sunny days and cool evenings, enabling the vines to ripen their fruit evenly and provide the flavours and balance that are reflected in
This Cabernet Sauvignon produces distinctive and intensely flavoured wine, with a lifted bouquet of classic varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is ripe, rich and generous and displays great structure and balance. This wine is ready to drink now, although cellaring will further enhance this wine.
