Welsh red wine specialists White Castle Vineyard have delivered another cracker. 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. More substantial than their award-winning Pinot Noirs, it has plenty of class and complexity.
White Castle Vineyard is 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.
