White Castle Vineyard Regent 2017

£22.50

12.00% ABV
Wonderful red fruit aromas and dark cherry flavours, a deep coloured quality red wine

This characterful red shows the Regent grape at its best. With the typical colour intensity of its type, substantial but well-integrated tannins and ripe blackcurrant and red plum flavours, this wine is an excellent match with many types of meat. It comes from White Castle Vineyard, a Welsh vineyard situated near the market towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth, owned and run by Robb and Nicola Merchant. Having purchased the 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.
