The Castle Hill Winery & Vineyards Wine List


SHIRAZ…….. This Shiraz has spicy blackberry, plum, and peppery flavors. There are additional notes of licorice, bitter chocolate and mocha. Shiraz goes very well with beef and other hearty foods. It also goes well with Indian, Mexican, and other spicy foods. This wine is rich and full, and should be served from a large glass at 64F.


CABERNET SAUVIGNON………… Cabernet is mellow and mild, hearty and rich. It has a deep red color, with the primary taste being black currant. Other overtones include blackberry and mint. The wine has an oaky, vanilla flavor. Cabernet goes well with beef, lamb and goose, especially when cooked with herbs. It also is a great match for brie, cheddar cheese and chocolate. The appropriate glass for this Cabernet Sauvignon has a large bowl to provide ample surface area for the wine’s aromas to be smelled. The point here is not to fill the glass full of a lot of wine – rather, it is to allow a lot of the wine to interact with the air while it is sitting on the table to help it develop the fullest flavors for your nose and mouth.

CASTLE HILL RED………………Not quite as harsh as other reds, Castle Hill Red has less tannin than a Cabernet. It is mellow but still complex, a bit chewy. Castle Hill Red is known for the flavors of plums, black cherry, violets, and orange. It is a perfect match for beef and other medium-heavy dishes. Try some with a rich, red pasta dish, or even a heavy chicken dish. It is also an excellent compliment to chocolate. It should be served at 64F.


CASTLE HILL WHITE……………..This robust white wine is a semi-sweet wine. The wine should be well chilled, and goes well with pungent cheese, apples, pears, and other crisp fruit. It also pairs well with light dishes that are still on the “thick” side, like chicken in a rich white sauce, or eggplant with heavy spices. It should be served at 48F.

CHARDONNAY……………….. Chardonnay is dry with typical flavors of apple, tangerine, lemon, melon, and oak. It goes best with poultry or seafood, like lobster or scallops.

WHITE ZINFANDEL……………….White zinfandel is a rose color that’s very sweet. Yes, white zinfandel is light and sweet. This is perfect in some situations – say a hot summer day with a crisp fruit salad. It’s also a great way for non-wine-drinkers to get used to the flavors in wine, without being put off by a heavily tannic monster wine. White zinfandel is delicious with cream-based-sauce with pasta, with fish, pork, and other “lighter” meals. It tends to have citrusy and light flavors – orange, vanilla, strawberry, raspberry, cherry. White zinfandel should be drunk at around 54F which is much warmer than fridge temperature (around 35F).

APPLE………………….crushed tart apples, fermented into a delectable crisp apple flavor. Perfect for a hot summer day. This wine can only be described as “SPRINGTIME N A BOTTLE.”
