Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz 2003
The bouquet is a complex blend of red berry fruits with plum and chocolate and a hint of spice. The palate has rich fruit flavors of dark berry with an excellent depth of intensity and an almost seamless structure. In the glass, it shows a deep vibrant red with purple tinges. The intense flavors are held together by well integrated fine grain tannins, providing a long rewarding finish. A stylish wine, which will age gracefully and improve with time in the bottle.
Viticulture: The fruit from this wine was sourced from premium vineyards within the Limestone Coast region, with the majority coming from the Connawarra and Wrattonbully regions. The Limestone Coast is one of Australia's leading wine producing areas, located half way between Melbourne and Adelaide. The region is famous for outcrops of red soil that sits above a hard layer of coastal limestone – hence the regions name. Careful crop management ensures low yields and intensely flavored fruit. The 1999 vintage was mild to warm during the ripening period, producing fruit with excellent color and flavor development.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
