White Castle Sparkling Welsh Wine is a dry, delicate, aromatic white wine made from a blend of Phoenix and Seyval Blanc grapes grown just outside Abergavenny in the beautiful Monmouthshire countryside in South East Wales.

 

This elegant Brut, traditionally made sparkling wine is pale straw in colour with hints of Elderflower and Gooseberry on the nose. It has balanced acidity and on the palette there's a delicate mousse with good structure and biscuity flavours indicative of yeast lees ageing. Classic and elegant this sparkling Welsh wine from White Castle Vineyards is perfect for toasting special occasions.

 

The grapes for this wine were hand harvested in 2019 and the juice fermented in stainless steel vats. In 2020 the wine was inoculated with a small amount of yeast to induce the secondary fermentation and bottled. The best Champagnes and Sparkling wines are made by méthod champenoise which requires a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine continued to sit on the lees for a further 38 months before being disgorged.

 

FOOD PAIRING

Sparkling wine tends to go very well with appetizers. This gorgeous sparkling Welsh wine also goes well with fish and very light meats, and of course as an after-dinner celebration or toast.
