Golf Wine!

 

Updated : Apr 27, 2009

Irish golfing legend Christy O’Connor Jnr has enjoyed a very successful career on tour, winning 17 times in 7 different countries including two Senior British Open Championships back to back. He has represented his Country in the World Cup, Ryder Cup and Dunhill Cup, his most memorable being the 1989 Ryder Cup when he defeated the then World No. 1 Fred Couples to help Europe retain the Ryder Cup.

Although best known for his prowess on the golf course, and more recently as an accomplished golf course designer, today at the Oceanico Amendoeira Resort in Alcantarilha, Portugal, Christy O’Connor Jnr introduced his own range of wines, the CHRISTY O’Connor Jnr SELECTION.

Speaking at the event, Christy O’ Connor Jnr said “ I have always appreciated a good bottle of wine and throughout my years on tour I have discovered many hidden gems from vineyards across the globe - and so in collaboration with the Herdade das Servas vineyard in the Alentejo, a very famous wine producing region of Portugal and Celebrity Wines, a distributor of golf professional endorsed wines for globally recognised brands such as Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Nick Faldo, Retief Goosen, John Daly and David Frost - we have developed the Christy O’Connor Jnr series of wines”.

The first offering includes the Christy O’Connor Jnr – ‘Selection’ – in both red & white. The Selection Red is a blend of some of the very popular local varietals, including Aragones, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark ruby in colour with a mature red fruit on the nose. A beautiful balanced, well rounded offering with a very fruit forward taste. A wine for most occasions as it will compliment a wide range of dishes.

Similarly the Selection White, a blend of local varietals including Roupeiro and Arinto, is a beautiful light citrus colour. Tropical fruit and hints of honey on the nose. Complex acidity and well-rounded. This delicious white wine will revive memories of those wonderful Mediterranean holidays.

The Private Selection Red is a step up in quality and complexity from the above.
The main varietal in this blend is the Touriga Nacional - the grape varietal that has been used for centuries in some of the finest offerings of Port. It has a deep aroma of mature fruit and hints of orange blossom. A complex and well structured wine with silky, smooth tannins and a long lasting finish.
