Vineyards of Wales was established in January 2020 to provide information on the Welsh wine and viticulture sector to the general public, trade and press.
Vineyards of Wales acts as a gateway into the flourishing world of Welsh wine and is the perfect starting point for those who are looking to visit a local vineyard, sample quality Welsh wine or simply find out more about the sector.
– A clear pale yellow colour, this wine looks like summer in a glass. On the nose it has fresh green apple aromas coupled with scents of gooseberry, stone fruits and meadow grass. This is followed up on the palate with refreshing flavours of crisp green apple and ripe nectarine. The wine has a nice mineral aspect that is pursued by a generous citrus acidity. It is perfect on its own over a long lunch although it would also sit well with seafood and light chicken dishes.
Tintern Parva Bwthyn Rhosyn (Bronze Medal), 2018 – Off dry rosé, made mainly from Pinot Noir and a touch of Pinot Gris. Light, fruity bouquet, fresh palate with red berry fruits.
Llaethliw Rosé, 2018 Bright watermelon flesh in colour, this wine offer a pleasant floral nose with hints of juicy stone fruits and crisp red apple. Once in the mouth you will experience bags of juicy citrus acidity with some notes of raspberry and sour cherry. Certainly one for the warmer summer months, to be enjoyed in the sunshine, with friends (from a distance) or as an aperitif.
Regent Rosé, Conwy Vineyard, 2019
A complex dry rosé using the Regent grape, grown on the vineyard in Anglesey. A nose of crushed red berry with wild strawberries and red pear notes on the palate. Great to quaff on a summer’s day but also a wine that works perfectly with Asian style dishes.
– Beautiful medium bodied red wine with hedgerow fruit aromas and flavours of blackberry. The gentle use of one-year old oak gives a soft rounded flavour that marries with the wine’s natural acidity. A perfect accompaniment for grilled lamb or mature cheese.
