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. This is 100% estate grown and vintaged. The aroma, quintessentially Pinot Noir, is of complex cherries and strawberries. It has a lively, balanced, rich palate. The French oak, fine tannin structures give the wine a long fine finish and after taste. With appropriate cellaring this wine will develop wonderful complexity.

Grapes are from Mount Barker; open-fermented in 2-tonne vats, hand-plunged 2-3 times daily; on skins 9 days, matured in French barriques for 15 months. April 28 harvest; vibrantly fresh and elegant array of red, blue and black fruits resting on a bed of fine tannins. Drink to: 2035; Price: $34.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

This is a lovely vibrant and youthful purple in the glass. Lifted aromatics of blue fruits, spice, cracked pepper, brambles and bouquet garni. The palate is mid-weight, pretty and lively. There are lashings of blue-fruited goodness, the tannin is firm and shapes the wine nicely and the acidity has a defining crunch. A lovely wine. Great value. Date Tasted: August 2021; Drink: 2021 to 2031; Price: $34.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Awarded Top Rank; Aaron Brasher; The Real Review

Always great. Always delicious. A wine hard to beat for consistency. Get around this Shiraz from Castle Rock Estate. Medium-bodied, it skips through the mouth. Earthy and meaty, dark berry fruits mingle with generous savoury goodness. Some char, meaty spices and sheets of white pepper synonymous with cool climate Shiraz glide through. It finishes long and calls you back time and again. Great stuff. Drink to eight years. QWine
