Introducing our Royal Red

Introducing our Royal Red

Posted on

We are excited to introduce the Regent of Tantallon, who joins our Aristocratic Red Wine family. Grown in the Hawke’s Bay, The Regent is a blend of mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties. With hints of Melbec, Syrah and Cabernet Franc, creating a Bordeaux style blend. Every drop shows a rich bouquet of coffee, bay leaf, black olive and juniper berry. These flavors fashion an aromatic complexity combined with a body and silkiness that can only come with careful cellaring.

The name ‘Tantallon’ dates back to Tantallon Castle, which was built by Red Douglases, who for over three hundred years was one of the most commanding baronial families in Scotland. Given the strength of the flavors and name, the Regent of Tantallon encompasses all qualities of a Royal Red.
