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.
2017 Review: Night-harvested, some cold maceration pre-pressing, only the free-run juice cool-fermented with cultured yeast. A quite beautiful example of Great Southern riesling, radiating purity and harmony between its fruit and acidity, both running long and clear. It will live for decades. Drink to: 2037; Price: $27.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2018; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
