Greg Norman Estates Greg Norman Australia Estates Limestone Coast Cabernet Merlot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant and complex aromas of spicy, red berry fruit, cinnamon and clove spice. The same abundant, vibrant fruit is refl ected on the palate which also shows a hint of licorice, sweet cinnamon spice, and subtle cedary French oak.

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

The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards in Coonawarra, Padthaway and Wrattonbully - in the Limestone Coast region in the south-east corner of South Australia. Individual vineyard parcels were fermented separately but treated similarly. Destemmed, crushed and fermented in either tank or oak barrels. Post Malolactic fermentation the wine was racked and returned for further maturation before bottling. Blending consisted of tasting each component and selecting the best for the final wine. 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot. The Wine Spectator called it “Polished, with a deft balance of plush texture and acidity supporting ripe berry and mint flavors, finishing gently.”
