Exclusive preview of the Luke Donald Wine Collection Posted on April 27, 2012 by The Butcher Hot off the Butchershop press: This weekend we have an exclusive preview of two of the world’s best ranked wines, clank! Yes, we’ve got the extreme pleasure of letting our customers be the first to taste top-ranked professional golfer, Luke Donalds’ wine collection in Glasgow. This Californian, Napa Valley blend of wines was inspired by the longstanding friendship between Luke Donald and fine wine professional Bill Terlato of the family-owned Terlato Wine Group and we can’t wait to add it permanently to our wine list. This weekend we’ve only a got a limited number of the Luke Donald Vintage Chardonnay and the Luke Donald 2006 Claret, so you’ll have to be quick off the mark to try them. The Terlato Wine Group say: “Whether on the golf course or in the vineyard, both men share a similar passion for excellence. The wine is handcrafted in a traditional European style: a rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.” Need we say more? About the wines: Luke Donald 2006 Claret: This wine is 100% barrel aged for 16 months in French oak barrels and has vibrant flavours of black berries, espresso beans and subtle spice, producing a supple texture and a wine that is packed full of complexity. Luke Donald 2010 Vintage Chardonnay: A golden yellow colour with Granny Smith apple and stone fruit aromas, supplemented by a touch of spice and slight notes of clove and cinnamon with a creamy, long finish. Classic Burgundian in style.
