Castle Rock Estate is nestled on the eastern slopes of the Porongurup mountain range and is named after a prominent nearby landmark. The vineyard has a cool and elevated northerly aspect, resulting in intensely flavoured wines.
Refined, fine-boned, pretty cabernet, shaped by chalky tannins that linger and whip around the palate. The impact of oak is minimal, leaving ample room for cassis to fully unfurl and eddy about. Something utterly satisfying on the palate here. Power without weight. From talented hands comes this quietly elegant wine, grown in a tiny, beautiful little region. And the price: don't start.
