Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator
Vibrant in flavor and well-mannered in structure, playing its blackberry and currant fruit against hints of licorice and bay leaf. The finish lingers easily against velvety tannins. Drink now through 2016.

California

View all wine

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
