Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz Cabernet is a dark garnet color. Vivid aromas of black cherries, mixed fresh plums, raspberry and subtle notes of chocolate mint invite on the nose. the palate is soft and rounded, showing generous flavors of cherry torte, plum and red raspberries which meld well with notes of spice and vanilla. The palate also offers complimenting dark regional fruit characters with balanced subtle oak notes of delicate cedar wood, cinnamon spice and mocha. is is a classic blend made from two of the most outstanding varieties of the Limestone Coast; perfectly complimenting each other in avor and structure: a wine that will age gracefully.

Fresh and vibrant, this lively style shows expressive density to the black cherry and raspberry fruit. Peppery spicenotes bolster the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018.

Distinguished by a thin, subterranean band of crumbled, red clay loam, Coonawarra is a fairly flat, otherwise unobtrusive region with a cool Mediterranean climate, actually not dissimilar to Bordeaux.

In Coonawarra, this unique layer of red clay is called, "terra rossa" and gets its color from iron oxide. The terra rossa soil overlies soft, penetrable limestone, in a continuous area that is part of the Limestone Coast zone of South Australia. This uncommon layering of soils creates a substrate that is both well draining and at the same time, offers good water retention to support vine roots through dry summers.

Not surprisingly, Coonawara experiences great success with the Bordeaux varieties, namely Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but also Shiraz. However Cabernet reigns superior and accounts for half of the Coonawarra harvest each year. Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon develops powerful, yet polished tannins, ripe, red berry fruit and often sweet herb or dried mint qualities. The region has an increased focus on the individual expressions of single vineyards.

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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
