The “Great White Shark”, Greg Norman – pro golfer turned wine lover back in the 1970s has been having wines produced under his name for quite awhile now. This particular Shiraz is from the Limestone Coast of Australia and would pair quite well with grilled meats.

On the nose: Black plum sauce, mint, tar, tobacco, eucalyptus and some forest floor action.
On the palate: A nice, dark-fruit-driving Shiraz that has that classic Australian-style “grip” on the mid palate with a very lush mouth feel. A cascading wave of blueberry, black plums, cola, dark chocolate and tobacco floods the palate and last well into a long finish.
