Terlato prepares third Jack Nicklaus launch
- Monday 16 July 2012
The Cabernet Sauvignon was vinified from parcels of fruit in the Rutherford Bench district of Napa Valley, the Private Reserve from sites in Stags Leap.
Nicklaus, a keen wine collector, took part in all the early blending sessions in a process Bill Terlato called ‘a natural marriage’ between them and the champion golfer.
Now Terlato has put together a Sauvignon Blanc-based white, the 2011 Nicklaus Private Reserve Napa Valley, which will retail at US$35.
The worlds of wine and golf frequently collide. Nick Faldo has his own wine range, and Ernie Els' wine Ernie Els Signature is part of the Terlato portfolio.
