Haggin Oaks Super Shop is pleased to announce the opening of our newest shop, The Under Par Bar, a wine shop featuring golf-specific wines.
Attention all wine afficionados! The Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop is now partnering with the greats of golf to bring you wines branded by famous PGA and LPGA Tour Golf Professionals. We’ve created a unique custom-converted wine barrel display cabinet which will be the home of our wine shop within our shop.
The Under Par Bar has brought in wines from Australian Greg Norman, who helped put his country’s grapes on the wine map; South Africans Ernie Els, Reitef Goosen and David Frost also have labels from their homeland. Luke Donald, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer have partnered with vineyards just down the way in the Napa Valley. Most of these golfers have married what was once a hobby, wine collecting, into producing their own wine labels, whether it’s through their own vineyards or partnering with a private label vintage.
We have several other PGA and LPGA Tour Golf Professional wines slated to come in during the next several months.
For the month of February our featured wine is 2012 Nicklaus White Private Reserve, a Sauvignon Blanc from the Napa Valley. The vineyards for the 2012 Nicklaus Private Reserve Napa Valley white are hand-harvested at cool daybreak temperatures and whole-cluster pressed, helping to preserve aromatics of citrus, stone fruit and green apple. Using an innovative method, the wine is barrel fermented with a portion of the wine in French oak, and the balance fermented in stainless steel barriques. The wine undergoes six months of sur lies aging and several weeks of batonnage to build body.
The result is a wine that walks a delicate line between finesse and complexity,with intriguing aromas of citrus, stone fruit and green apple. Displays subtle hints of floral and caramel. It showcases lush fruit at the front palate followed by a rich and textured mid-palate and a delicate and long finish.
The Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop is located at 3645 Fulton Avenue in Sacramento, CA.
