The Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Shiraz is a vibrant crimson red color. The inviting aromas ring true on the palate with ripe Shiraz fruit flavors of dark plum, black cherry, raspberry and black berry. The aromas and Flavors meld with rich maturation notes of dark fruit cake, chocolate mint, and paneforte with a subtle whiff of tobacco leaf. A hint of the warm earthy complex notes that are indicative of parts of the Limestone coast region, confer a sense of place on this wine. There is a seamlessness to the wines silky smooth tannins, which adds to the structure and character on the finish. This is a generous Shiraz with a pleasing and long lasting finish.
The palate, though big and opulent, has an elegant, smooth texture, some mocha and cedar oak character combined with ripe, dark berry fruit and fine tannins.
The wine was fermented in both small vats and roto fermenters. Select batches received extended maceration. The wine aged in new and seasoned French oak barrels.
