2017 Wild Boar Norton

2017 Wild Boar Norton

Considered to be a truly Virginian grape, Norton is a black-skinned varietal that takes its name from Dr. Daniel Norton, who was the pioneer grape-grower based in Richmond in the early1800s and is credited with creating this varietal. DNA analysis suggests that it is a hybrid ofVitis vinifera (the famous Eurasion species of vine — e.g., Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet, etc.) andVitis aestivalis (a vine species native to North America’s east coast). In 2014, we sourced some Norton fruit from a vineyard outside Middleburg, VA for the production of our port-style wine. In this same year, we thought we’d try our hand at producing a dry table wine as well, producing only 4 barrels (~90 -100 cases) of the wine. It was a HUGE success and widely popular, so we have made this small production wine annually! We believe in this truly Virginian varietal and want to champion the amazing story of the grape. The wine was aged for a year and a half in French oak (30% new).
