Schloss Vollrads

 

Greg Norman is undoubtedly one of the best-known and most respected personalities in the world. His unyielding approach to both golf and life earned him the nickname, The Great White Shark. It’s a name he embraces and embodies through his achievements on the golf course, in business and in life. Greg Norman is a man driven to succeed. He lives a life full of adventure, in both sport and business, and he’s not afraid to take risks to pursue his dreams.

Bold. Unrelenting. Driven. Integrity. These are all words that invariably describe Greg Norman. These are words that also distinctively describe Greg Norman Estates. Created from a passion and strengthened by determination, Greg Norman Estates is a collection of fine wines sourced from stunning wine regions around the world; California, Australia and Argentina. The wines speak true to this global man, reflecting his experiences while traveling the world over. Each region is appreciated for its own unique characteristics, the incredible wines produced and for the influence they have had on Greg.

A strong believer in the role of wine in an active, easygoing lifestyle, Greg’s aim is to produce approachable yet bold wines from these countries and bring them back to you so that you will be able to “discover your shark side.”

Greg Norman Shiraz 2012

VINIFICATION

Shiraz vineyard parcels are kept separate in the winery from the crusher until final stage of wine blending. After de-stemming and crushing all fruit is gently fermented for 5 to 10 days or longer at 70 degrees then pressed off skins before the harsh bitter tannins are extracted into the wine. Ferments were racked off the lees to complete malolactic fermentation in either stainless steel tanks or in small oak barrels. After 12 months maturation the individual wine components and wine barrel groups of each vineyard were tasted and selected through to be included in the final blend.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Th­e 2012 Greg Norman Estates Shiraz is an attractive dark crimson red color in the glass. On the nose, rich chocolate and coconut mocha notes from the oak maturation underpin distinctive black cherry, mulberry and blackberry jam aromas. Th­e medium bodied wine is soft and elegantly structured showing a spectrum of rich dark fruits including cherry, mulberry, blackberry, and boysenberry flavors on the palate. ­These flavors meld with fine cedar and chocolaty oak adding persistence on the long finish.

Greg Norman Shiraz Cabernet 2012

VINIFICATION

Th­e Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties for this wine are kept separate in the winery from the crusher until final stage of wine blending. After de-stemming and crushing all fruit was gently fermented for 5 to 10 days at 70 degrees; then pressed off skins before the harsh bitter tannins were extracted into the wine. Ferments were racked off the lees to complete malolactic fermentation in either stainless steel tanks or in small oak barrels. After 12 months maturation, the individual wine components and barrels were tasted and selected to make up the final blend.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Th­e 2012 Shiraz Cabernet is a dark red color in the glass with a bright purple hue. Vivid aromas of ripe berry fruit, distinctive blackberry, dark plum and mocha are inviting. Th­e palate of the wine is a rich seam of dark berry, cherry and plum fruit which define the soft supple and composed palate .Complimenting the dark regional fruit characters are the balanced subtle oak notes of delicate spice and mocha dust from the deft use of seasoned old and new oak maturation. ­is This is a classic blend made from two of the most outstanding varieties of the Limestone Coast, perfectly complimenting each other in flavor and structure.

Matua Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

This is classic Marlborough Sauvingon Blanc, with bright aromatic herbal notes and a complete array of aromas the style is famous for. Think sage and fresh mint, followed by delicious tropical fruits. This year, the palate has vibrant citrus and pineapple flavors with great length and structure
We pick sauvignon blanc grapes from more than 100 different vineyards across Marlborough, encompassing all the sub-regions within the Walrau and Awatere Valleys so the wine is always the most complete expression of the Marlborough vintage. For 2014, selected parcels were separated from the skins before pressing. A cool fermentation in stainless steel, combined with Matua’s own yeast selection helps to enhance the pungent natural aromas we know and love in SB. Following the fermentation the wine was left to sit on lees before final blending and then making it’s way into bottle for you to enjoy.

Schloss Vollrads Riesling Kabinett 2010

The viticultural history of Schloss Vollrads is inseparably linked with the name Greiffenclau. This family has perhaps the longest tradition of wine growing not only in the Rheingau, but in the world. The current owner is the 29th in a line of Greiffenclaus to own the Schloss or castle where grapes have been grown since at least 1210. The estate is currently planted in 98% riesling and and 2% Ehrenfelser a local grape that adds a lively, spicy touch and helps the Vollrads be especially long-lived. The Kabinett Riesling is beautifully balanced between soft, ripe citrus fruit with a lovely sweetness on the palate with clean cut acidity and delicate minerality.
