Hebron Vineyard's 2018 vintage resulted in our first release in 2019, a rare Welsh red wine "1" made from our Rondo grapes.
This has proven to be a very popular wine and has now sold out, although with a little arm twisting we may release a bottle from our private cellar.
The sister wine of the 2018 vintage is a superlative sparkling white wine 'Silver Lining' made from our Solaris grapes. This wine has spent an extra year in the bottle, using the 'méthode traditionnelle' and was released in November 2020.
We are very pleased that 'Silver Lining' has been given PGI status.
This scheme aims to protect the authenticity and value of traditional foods and drinks. It is an important indicator of Wales being an excellent source of delicious and high-quality food and drinks, rooted in traditional skills, history, top quality produce and practice.
'Silver Lining' has been judged to have achieved the exacting standards required to be given this accolade and we are entitled to describe 'Silver Lining' as " Quality Sparkling Welsh Wine ".
A wine master noted of our 2018 sparkling wine, "exceptional quality" and we could not agree more.
Clean bright pastel lemon shimmer of moderate intensity. Fine bead, vibrant and balanced.
Clean emerging youthful intertwined aromas of cut hay, pear with a subtle mango and passion fruit background.
Clean bright flavours of flinty lemon, star fruit and pear, integrated across a softly dancing mousse. Finishing with a moderate length of key lime and biscuit.
Conclusion / Discussion
Exceptional quality from hybrid variety (s?). High quality triage and outcome.
Drink now, Cellaring potential 5-7 years.

Neither of our 2018 'Premier Cru' vintage wines have required any interventions after the first ferment stage, a testament to the quality of these Welsh grown grapes.
Our 2019 vintage has led to the simultaneous release of both a still medium/light red and a still bright flavoured white wine.
"Triskele" White and Red (Solaris and Rondo)
Once again the quality of the grapes has created two wines without the need for interventions after the first ferment stage. Both wines are excellent.
We feel that the superb unadulterated taste reflects the love and passion that goes into our work, the organic principals we follow, the mineral rich terroir of the Preseli foothills and the west coast cool climate.
Released in November 2020.
