For reasons unknown, Aldwick’s 790 Regent vines were established in four irregular blocs on the outer perimeters of each of Woodlands Vineyard’s quadrants. Such variations in slope, aspect, exposure, and vine number pose challenges to surmount. Perhaps in planting Woodlands in 2010 came an impromptu decision to include Regent. Mystery aside, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Regent has proved a rewarding grape variety deliciously redolent of Victoria plums and Christmas spices.
