Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz Cabernet 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz Cabernet is a dark garnet color. Vivid aromas of black cherries, mixed fresh plums, raspberry and subtle notes of chocolate mint invite on the nose. The palate is soft and rounded, showing generous flavors of cherry torte, plum and red raspberries which meld well with notes of spice and vanilla. The palate also offers complimenting dark regional fruit characters with balanced subtle oak notes of delicate cedar wood, cinnamon spice and mocha. This is a classic blend made from two of the most outstanding varieties of the Limestone Coast; perfectly complimenting each other in flavor and structure: a wine that will age gracefully.

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

Fresh and vibrant, this lively style shows expressive density to the black cherry and raspberry fruit. Peppery spice notes bolster the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018.

Greg Norman’s best-selling Australian wine. Medium-bodied and bold, with hearty spice notes and lush black fruit characteristics. Best with grilled meats or vegetarian chili.
