Wow this came out of left field. But the Tiger Woods clue makes sense now.
Nice to have you back Corrado.

Another Aussie. But a pass for me, overloaded with syrah/shiraz.

Greg Norman Shiraz? Hmm, would not have guessed that. Totally unlike Mumm, or Ice Wine, or tappenade! I thought I had a Greg Norman in the cooler -- just checked and I have a 2002 Limestone Coast Shiraz-Cabernet. Not the Reserve. It's a more general-purpose one. But I might open it this week and report my tasting results (since, after all, I can still consider myself in LabRat mode from the first part of thise week, gotta continue to serve the community!)

An easy holdout for me: no NY.
For those wondering why, you could check back through the blog on the Penfold's for the details.

From Celler360.com:

2002 Limestone Coast Reserve Shiraz: $45
(Interesting, the non-reserve made #58 on the top 100 wines for Wine Spectator's list for 2005)

2001 Padthaway Preserve Shiraz: $45
Accolades for Padthaway:

91 POINTS Wine Spectator | Harvey Steiman | April 18, 2007
Supple, generous and open-textured, offering a nice range of dark berry and cherry flavors shaded with mineral, tar and licorice notes that sing harmoniously against lacy acidity on the finish. Drink now through 2016.

Why do Australians use the name Shiraz? The Australian vines were origionaly from France, not Iran.

From Wikipedia:


"It is called Syrah in its country of origin, France, as well as in the rest of Europe, Argentina, Chile, and most of the United States. The name Shiraz became popular for this grape variety in Australia, where it has long been established as the most grown dark-skinned variety. In Australia it was also commonly called Hermitage up to the late 1980s, but since that name is also a French Protected designation of origin, this naming practice caused problem on some export markets and was dropped."

and

"DNA profiling in 1999 found Syrah to be the offspring of two obscure grape varieties from southeastern France, Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche."

Too pricey for me. I'm not a huge Australian Red fan. I like Aussie whites though. Love me some grapefruit flavors.

lowest alcohol % i've seen on a Shiraz in a long long time. I wonder what the actual % is?

Side story: I was speaking to a wine maker the other day and we tasted a 98 point Pinot that stated it was 15.5%. He told me a horrible secret.. that after it was lab tested by interested parties.. it was found to be over 17% alcohol O_O. Of course..that doens't change the fact that it's a good wine.. a great wine can hide high alcohol!

Looking around the web it appears theses are about $45/bottle (before tax and shipping) if you can find them in stock. So not a bad woot price at all for $60 shipped.

The numbers look quite acidic no? Could make it a nice food wine...

Despite the cheesy golfer brand (although Greg was a pretty golfer), the reserve versions of this label consistently appear in international wine review top 100s. The non-reserves are so-so, but the reserves are outstanding. I would recommend buying 1 set, but no more. Save it for the next WA state wine...

when i think of shiraz i rarely think of it pairing with food, just so overpowering. (the wine that is). What matches with it?

So, how good is this deal?

Again, it's a little tricky to tell as these wines do not appear to be readily available from most online retailers. Ordering is not available via the Greg Normal Estates website, though there is some info about their wines.

Cellar360 (Hello! Gerard) seems to be the only place that has them both. And their prices is $45 a piece, plus shipping, plus tax (which everyone pays this time -- this is not just a CA operation).

Without including shipping or tax costs, this turns out to be in line with the standard woot discount range; once you add shipping (to East Cost) this turns into a knock-your-socks-off discount.
