External Reviews for Greg Norman Estates Chardonnay
Greg Norman's 2008 Chardonnay was partially barrel-fermented and aged in seasoned French oak. Medium straw-colored, it offers up a nose of toasty oak, a touch of mineral, white peach, poached pear, and hazelnuts. Light bodied, restrained and creamy-textured, it has plenty of spicy fruit, good balance, and a medium-long finish.
Bright and supple, refreshing in flavor and deftly balanced, with creamy pear, kiwifruit and buttercream flavors, lingering easily.
The Greg Norman Estates 2008 Chardonnay is pale straw in color with a vibrant green hue. The nose is dominated by flinty mineral, spicy oak, white peach, toasted almonds, with hints of mandarin peel and jasmine. Creamy and round with a mineral, lemony acid profile, the wine is balanced delicately with spicy vanillin oak and fleshy stone-fruits.
Elegant, almost aristocratic, balancing its pear, citrus and cashew flavors on a lovely edge of acidity, which lets all echo nicely on the graceful finish. Drink now through 2004.
The bouquet reveals figs and melon fruit, complexed by creamy and light butterscotch characters and well integrated nutmeg oak aromas. On the full-bodied, dry, rich palate, the intensely varietal Chardonnay flavors are well balanced by the supporting oak characters, and all held together in a rich, creamy texture. This creamy texture leads to a clean, long, very complex and rounded finish.
Pale bright straw. Delicate, somewhat evolved and oxidative dusty aromas of dried flowers, grilled nuts and lemon. Smooth and reserved, long and savory, with a bright core of complex, fleshy citrus fruit, well-integrated vanilla and spicy oak, and a lingering impression of brioche.
