This wine is named in honour the founders of Castle Rock Estate, and is made to highlight the greatness of Riesling from the vineyard. Hand-harvested and made with care and diligence, the result is a wine with pure Riesling characters that will age gracefully.
Colour: Very pale straw coloured.
Bouquet: A delicate yet fragrant nose, showing pink grape fruit characters, backed by some delicate passionfruit and floral notes. There is a slatey, minerality that typifies the granite soils of the Porongurups.
Palate: The palate shows the wonderful delicacy of the variety, with low phenolics and a pure and long, focussed structure. The pink grapefruit characters flow through the length of the palate, while the natural acidity is powerful and feature of this wine. It is however, perfectly balanced and provides a finish that is fine, long, clean and refreshing.
Ideal aperitif wine, will also accompany fish, delicate crustacean and mild Asian dishes.
Enjoy as a young crisp Riesling or cellar for 20 years to provide a lovely aged wine with characters of toast and honey.
