Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz is deep, dark red with purple hues. Intense, lifted aromas of ripe, dark plum, blackberry, sweet vanillin and spice with light subtle hints of blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, all portend to a generous palate that is full flavored, balanced and long.
The palate, though big and opulent, has an elegant, smooth texture, some mocha and cedar oak character combined with ripe, dark berry fruit and fine tannins. The mid palate's ripe berry flavors will, with time, reveal more complex characters such as dark chocolate, licorice, wood smoke and warm leather, as the wine ages and evolves.
A full bodied, rich, rewarding Shiraz that expresses the warmth of the Australian vintage and the riper flavors, obtainable from the renowned Limestone Coast regions - a wine both generous and harmonious.
Big explosion of fruit and berry, giving way to medium-full tannins, finished with strong spice and wood tones. The spice was overpowering to me, blocking out the fruit taste almost immediately. Seemed more alcoholic than it was. It was more overpowering than other Shiraz I have had. Did not like, will not buy again.
