Greg Norman Estates Eden Valley Australia 2016 Chardonnay, $10.19-$14.99, 84 points, poured a deep straw yellow color.
Strong smells of caramel and Chardonnay-specific grape were almost pungent and unpleasant for me.
Though the early medium-plus body showed creamy with good acidity, the texture morphed hard along with austere flavors of cantaloupe, caramel, and wood.
Finished long on the fading palate with an awkward 14% alcohol and a redeeming hint of lime.
I didn't care for the pairing of Ollie's bake-stuffed Butterfly shrimp.
Having had previous Greg Norman Chardonnays, I was disappointed.
