Greg Norman Estates:
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.

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

This wine is dark vibrant crimson color with purple hues. Dense dark fruit aromas of dark plum, ripe blackberry and cherry become more complex, elegant and savory, with olive, cassis and leather that intensify the nose. Sweet vanillin and mocha oak characters underpin the wine. The strong, fruit driven palate is supported by cedar and vanillin oak characters and fine silky tannins. These add to the wine's complexity and ensure lingering, ripe fruit flavors on the finish.

Dark Shiraz notes of berry fruit, plum and spice meld with the Cabernet's rich mulberry flavors and fine tannins. Attractive cedar and vanilla characters are derived from oak maturation, and contribute good complexity and great length of flavor.
