Faldo Sauvignon Blanc

Price:£13.20
Tasting Note: 

The essence of the Loire Valley shines through in this Sauvignon Blanc which easily stands up to more expensive Sancerres and Pouilly Fumes. Grassy and elderflower notes balance perfectly with powerful fruit flavours. A great match when serving asparagus, delicate white fish dishes or goat cheese salads.

Background

Sir Nick Faldo is one of Europe's finest golfers with 6 Major Championships and 11 Ryder Cup appearances. The former World Number 1 is the highest individual points scorer in Ryder Cup history. For his contributions and service to golf, Nick Faldo received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in November 2009. Sir Nick is the only living British golfer to receive such an honour.

Sir Nick has always had a passion for great wines and through the years, he's had the privilege to be exposed to many. He wanted to create a European range that encapsulated his love for the wines and regions that he's encountered over the years. The wines have been selected from some of the best vineyards across Europe, resulting in a range that is accessible, diverse and a reflection of his personality.

The Faldo Shield - the six stripes in claret and green represent his 6 Major Championships in the order of their win: Claret Jug, Green Jacket, Green, Claret, Green, Claret, Claret, Green. It is a golfer's story, a piece of history, a celebration of championship moments and the winner who created them.
