White Castle Vineyard Pinot Noir Reserve 2019

£32.00

12.0% ABV
Intense aromas of elderberry, cherry and strawberry with vanilla and toast

White Castle Vineyard is a Welsh vineyard situated near the market towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth, owned and run by Robb and Nicola Merchant. They hit the headlines in 2021 by winning a Decanter Gold Medal for their 2018 Pinot Noir Reserve. Their 2019 Pinot Noir is truly stunning, putting Burgundies at the same price point to shame. Intense and complex, layers of raspberry, cherry and strawberry with vanilla a hint of toast wash around the mouth in an entrancing interplay. A seriously good wine.

Having purchased their 12-acre smallholding in 1995 they converted the milking parlour into their home a year later, however, it was 2008 before the dream of owning a vineyard become a reality, the 5 acres gently sloping, the south-facing field was purchased, soil tests were performed and vines ordered. May 2009 saw the planting of 4000 vines of Pinot Noir, Regent, Rondo, Seyval Blanc & Phoenix, with May 2010 seeing a further planting of Siegerrebe 800 vines. May 2019 marked their 10th anniversary since first planting and to mark this milestone they have planted a further 2000 vines of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc.
