Greg Norman Limestone Coast Cabernet Merlot 2012
The 2012 Greg Norman Estates Cabernet Merlot is a gorgeous garnet red color, vibrant and lustrous in the glass. The nose is bright with defined aromas of red berry fruits, strawberry, fresh raspberry, cranberry and red currant. With hints of warm, dark plum and rhubarb along with fine cinnamon spice and light cedar oak notes adding complexity to the nose. The medium bodied wine has a tight structure around a generous core of red berry fruit as reflected in the wines aromas. The soft, rounded and velvety tannins add to the overall structure and texture of the palate, but also add definition and length to the finish. "This is a classic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot of great finesse and character, two varieties renown for perfectly complimenting each other and for making long lived wines that age gracefully," said Winemaker, Andrew Hales.
