Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz is a vibrant dark crimson color with rich purple hue. The nose is rich and complex showing strong notes of dark chocolate cake, black cherries, blueberry pie and dark plum with a hint of gingerbread and cinnamon. There is a hint of lifted coconut and vanillan oak rounding out the aromas. The bouquet flows on to the palate with big flavors and generous dark chocolate, dark fruit and rich sweet vanillan coconut oak. Behind these primarily flavors are an array of complex flavors including cherry stone, tobacco and spiced ginger bread. This 2008 Shiraz expresses the best qualities of the Limestone Coast Shiraz vineyards of South Australia.
