Golf legend Davis Love III will lead the U.S. as Captain for the 2016 Ryder Cup, held at the Hazeltine Golf Club in Chaska starting September 27th. But when he’s not on the course, he’ll be making a stop at the France44 tasting bar! He’ll be featuring his Love Family Farm wines: Aledru Chardonnay and Red Blend.
A refreshingly crisp Chardonnay done in a modern-Chablis style, the Aledru Chardonnay has a smooth, rich taste profile that features honeyed and tropical peach flavors. Fermented mainly in stainless steel, it is vibrant, fresh, and will go beautifully with any number of dishes.
The Aledru Red Blend consists of 48% Shiraz, 24% Mourvedre, 19% Petit Verdot, 5% Grenache and 4% Pinotage. It’s an elegantly complex wine with cassis, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, dried herb, cinnamon and hints of cigar and leather aromas. It was fermented in stainless steel and then aged for 12 months in French and American oak.
Love’s passion for wine mirrors his passion for golf. The Aledru wines are characterized by balance, depth, and precision of style, and the quality of winemaking is apparent in both the Chardonnay and Red Blend. But apart from fancy words and classy labels, only the wine can truly speak for itself—so stop by our tasting bar this Friday to meet both the legend and the wine!
