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.
This wine is the essence of what the Great Southern has to offer for Riesling. Sourced from three outstanding vineyards that each play a role in bringing different aspects to the overall wine. The lifted floral and rose petal aromas are perfectly balanced on a central citrus/lime core with talcy acidity and textural mid-palate weight. There are some very attractive nuances of musk lollies and crushed wildflowers. Typical of Great Southern Rieslings, the wine is very attractive in its youth but the biggest smiles will be with those who have the patience to cellar for 8-10 years.
