Castelli Great Southern The Sum Riesling 2016
In 2004, the Castelli’s dream of a family-owned winery became a reality when, upon the slopes of Mt Shadforth, the Castelli Estate property was purchased - A 120 acre farm which overlooks Wilson’s Inlet, Mt. Lindesay and the lush countryside around Denmark.
The property was acquired with a semi-complete winery which, with the family’s extensive construction and engineering experience, was later completed in 2006. With a strong commitment to quality, the next twelve months were spent putting together a highly talented winemaking team. The Castelli family enticed winemakers Mike Garland and Andrew Hoadley to come on board in what were the beginnings of one of today’s most promising Western Australian boutique wine brands.
The 2016 vintage was slightly earlier than normal for the white varieties. Crop loads were low with some inclement weather at flowering, which allowed the canopies to cope easily with the fruit load and produce intense flavour profiles. The small crop load combined with fine weather and the lack of extreme conditions in December/January promoted early flavour and sugar development.
