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, 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. Their Siegerrebe has layered aromas of peach, orange blossom & nectarine, with ripe lychee on the palate and a long, soft, spicy finish. Underneath this, the wine still has a good seam of acidity that delivers freshness and lightness perhaps surprising with such full flavours.
