The namesake of this wine was another prominent red – James Douglas, the 4th Earl of Morton and Regent of Scotland from 1572 to 1578. Tantallon Castle, was the seat of the Red Douglases who were one of the most commanding baronial families in Scotland for over 300 years.
Our wine, The Regent of Tantallon is just as commanding as the Red Douglases. Born in 2009, it is slightly younger yet still displays all the characteristics fit to mingle with nobility. Produced using grapes from our Tantallon vineyard, based in the Hawkes Bay.
A masterful Bordeaux-style blend that portrays all the traits of a great leader – courage and softness (Merlot), combined with powerful forward leadership (Cabernet Sauvignon).
