Favorite Wine: 2009 Rebellion Red Norton

Norton Wine Review: Bright Meadows Farm Winery is a ten year old vineyard venture growing grapes on a former tobacco farm. I met Shirley Archer here, who treats her plantings with the attitude of a Master Gardener (which she is). Not only do they not use additional sulfites in their wine processing, they also try not using fungicides on their grapes. Living in the hot and humid South almost mandates spraying, but BMF tries to provide something quite unique in the wine world. How can they do this? Their Burley Red (named for a type of tobacco) is a mighty dry 100% 2009 Chambourcin grape wine. So dry that it comes across as quite tart. Their 2009 Rebellion Red Norton is complete with a hard to read Revolutionary War history on the back of the bottle. There is nothing typical about this young Norton wine. I do not generally appreciate those who compare Norton wines to heavy Merlot or Zinfandels, but in this case I will stump you by describing this unusual Norton to a fine-like-Oregon Pinot Noir (a lot of imagination has to go into that comparison). A charming light Norton, but am not implying ‘thin’. An ever so soft, almost floral, bouquet is down right Norton atypical. Do you ever buy wines at a location because you are enamored with your host? Sure happened to me. Of course, I can tell my wife I bought theme strictly for health concerns. I wonder what it takes to be considered an organic wine? Can these be stored for years to come without all those wonderful chemicals we have in everything else we consume? I tend to think not, so go enjoy the Bright Meadows Farm setting and their wines today.
