Greg Norman Estates Champagne Blend Sparkling Pinot Noir-Chardonnay NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Pale straw green in color with a fine yet persistent bead. On the nose there are lifted strawberry, citrus and nutty aromas with a hint of sherbet character. It is a medium- to full-bodied style with generous stone fruit and citrus flavors, with a very smooth yet generous finish.

Greg's Wine Preferences I was first introduced to wine and the appreciation of a good bottle of wine back in the 70s when I started playing professional golf in Europe. I would frequently enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner and since I was playing a great deal of golf in France at the time, we favored French wine. While in Australia, I did try many Aussie wines, but they were not nearly as popular as they are today. I drank Californian wine very infrequently, as I was not a regular in the States. Now, however, it seems all I drink are varietals from Australia or California, as I tend to enjoy their qualities better than wines from other countries. One of my favorite wines is the Australian Reserve Shiraz. It has such a deep, intense flavor, filled with tannins that are pronounced but not overbearing, and a hint of blueberry. Zinfandel is also a personal favorite, and the new Lake County Zinfandel has the spicy, red fruit character style that I particularly enjoy. Only after many years of experimenting with wines from all over the world have I come to understand the characteristics that I most enjoy. In my Chardonnays, I prefer a less dry, less heavy wine with more oak flavor to it. I find that most California and Australian Chardonnays possess this quality. For this reason, I wanted the style of my new Santa Barbara County Chardonnay to be alive with fruit flavors and pair well with many foods. Many people assume that I prefer Australian wine above all others, because that is where Greg Norman Estates originated, but it isn't true. For me it depends on the situation, menu choice and mood. I am more of a casual wine drinker, rather than an intense wine connoisseur, and therefore I drink whatever wine I have a desire for at that moment. Read less
