Greg Norman California Estates Chardonnay 2011

Greg Norman California Estates Chardonnay 2011

Sku: 021928

Santa Barbara County’s mild marine climate and dramatic hillside create an ideal environment for growing Chardonnay grapes with high flavor intensity balanced by crisp acidity.

Tasting notes
Begins with bright aromas of pineapple and lemon zest. Forward tropical fruit flavors greet the palate and are highlighted by notes of vanilla and hints of spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and luscious and the wine finishes clean and refreshing.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are primarily from the Yarra Valley of Victoria. All fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to retain flavor and color intensity.

Fermentation on solids was started in refrigerated, stainless steel tanks. The wine was then transferred to new and seasoned French and American oak for barrel fermentation.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of peach and melon gain complexity with subtle oak notes. These fruit aromas develop across the creamy and smooth palate, supported by subtle oak nuances.

Awards & Accolades
Wine Spectator (June 2011) 2009 Chardonnay: "Smooth, with well-modulated pear, peach and spice flavors that remain deftly balanced through the finish. Drink now through 2014." - Harvey Steiman
