Food Pairings for Greg Norman Estates Shiraz Blend Limestone Coast Shiraz Cabernet
A very meaty, chewy, and spicy red wine with an abundance of plum and dark cherry on the palate; but not too sweet. Very affordable and doesn't require extended aging. The perfect wine for everyday drinking.
Tasting Notes This blend has become an Australian classic. The Shiraz (75%) contributes spice, ripe plum and blackberry aromas and flavors, while the Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) fruit gives rich mulberry and fine velvety tannins. Attractive cedar and vanilla characters are derived from oak maturation, and contributes complexity and a great length of flavor. Vinification The individual parcels of fruit were harvested and then fermented separately in small rotary fermenters for 6-7 days. The wine was pressed off the skins and racked into new and seasoned American and French oak barrels for 18 months prior to bottling. Winemaker Andrew Hales Cellaring Excellent drinking now but will reward careful cellaring for 3 to 5 years. Technical Details Alcohol: 14% pH: 3.45 Acidity: 6.2g/L Residual Sugar: 2.6g/L
