The Sporting Wine Club team is thrilled to be introducing it’s latest Sporting Wine, the Louis 57 range, named of course after the great Louis Oosthuizen. Why 57? He shot that score at Mossel Bay GC on the Garden route!
Louis’ vineyard is based at Boschkloof one of the oldest wine growing regions of South Africa next door to Stellenbosch. This means we now have a wonderful spread of South African wines when added to the Hemel en Aarden Valley and Wellington near Paarl.
Louis has a special selection of wines to include the iconic ‘Open Champion’ Syrah after his win in 2010, the Double Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon after his incredible shot at the 2nd hole of the Augusta Masters when he shot a 2 on the Par 5 and the Jasoma Conclusion, named after his three children. We also love his Rosé, as he says combining the strawberry with hints of candy floss. I personally love his Sauvignon Blanc too.
As you know we are keen to emphasise our links to the winemakers charity. The Louis Oosthuizen Foundation supports disadvantaged young children’s charities in Africa and we are delighted to put our weight behind that.
Our members recently enjoyed all the wines being displayed, and we look forward to a long association with our new sporting connection.
