“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
Norton’s Privada is a very special offering for #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions. Originally reserved for the Swarovski family’s private cellar, this exclusive high-end blend resulted from a request by Gernot Langes–Swarovski to create the best wine to enjoy among their friends. The family kept it Privada (private in Spanish), for many years. Its grapes come from the winery´s oldest vineyards, between 50 and 90 years old. A truly unique wine, it is a special selection of the best barrels of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which results in a harmonious, complex, and elegant blend. The Privada script on the label is an exact replica of the late Gernot Langes–Swarovski handwriting.
Available at BC Liquor Stores Norton’s Privada makes an ideal last-minute gift!
Deep purple in colour, this wine has an aromatic, medium nose of just-ripened black plums, blackberries, red cherries, red currants, blossom and forest floor.
The palate mirrors the nose and is dry, medium-plus-bodied and balanced. Rich, silky and elegant with a lingering finish given by the integration of the wine’s three varietals.
$25.99 On sale until January 1st at $22.99 at BC Liquor Stores
