2017 Stone Hill Norton...$15.99 / 750 ml
Absolutely outstanding vintage! Complex nose with brambly black current and hints of butterscotch and toasted nuts from barrel aging. Rich and full-bodied, the 2017 Norton brought Stone Hill its 4th C.V. Riley Award in 7 years as Missouri’s Best Norton!
The Norton grape is a true native American grape of the species vitis aestivalis and the official state grape of Missouri. Since the Norton grape evolved under North-American, continental growing conditions, it is perfectly suited to our long, warm summers and cold winters. In addition, it is blessed with a natural resistance to all types of fungal disease. Our Estate Bottled Norton is produced from 100 percent estate-grown Norton grapes from our own Norton Vineyards high above the Missouri River. Careful fermentation on the skins is followed by 12 months of aging in French, Hungarian and American oak barrels.
Harvested mid October 2017; Alcohol - 13.8%
