Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz 2007
Syrah/Shiraz from South Australia, Australia
The 2007 Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz is a bright crimson color with plum red hues. The delicate but distinctive nose opens up in the glass revealing lifted aromas of cinnamon spice, light cherry wood and cedar oak characters. A dditional notes of ripe cranberry, black cherry and dark plum notes on the nose lead to a medium bodied palate creating a flavor profile of rich cherry and blueberry fruit. Balanced acidity and supple tannins ensure a soft and evenly textured Shiraz.
Wine Spectator - "Bright, focused and tangy, with a nice ripe feel to the currant and blueberry flavors. Shaded with hints of mineral and tobacco on the refined finish. Drink now through 2015"

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
