Greg Norman Estates Chardonnay 2011
"The Greg Norman Estates 2011 Chardonnay is pale lemon in color with a subtle green rim. Aromas of intense grapefruit, fresh nectarine and lemon zest jump from the glass. Subtle vanillin spice notes lead to a lively palate with flavors of pink grapefruit, blossom and mandarin peel. e wine has zesty, mouthwatering acidity and offers an incredible lengthy and tasty finish." -Winery
External Reviews for Greg Norman Estates Chardonnay
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.
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.
The 2007 Chardonnay is light gold in color and made in the popular style exemplified by Kendall-Jackson. The nose offers some oak notes and aromas of white peach and pear. This leads to a smooth-textured wine with an excellent layering of apple and pit fruit flavors with a hint of tropical fruits in the background. Balanced and medium-long, this nicely-made Chardonnay is meant for drinking over the next 1-2 years.
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.
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 Chardonnay Yarra Valley 1998 is not quite as spectacular as the Cabernet-Merlot. It's smooth texture and bright, profuse pear, floral and apricot flavors earned it an 88-point rating (or "very good").
