2023 Australian Pinot Noir Challenge

It’s been a busy wine show season.  We usually enter a number of wine shows in order to get a good benchmark of the quality of our wines. The shows have well respected judges who critique our wines against our peers.  

We have been thrilled with the results from a couple of recent shows. We were successful in the Pinot Noir Challenge, the Wine Show of WA, and the WA Good Food Guide Wine Awards. It’s a credit to our team and the quality of the Porongurup region.


We had two wines listed in the Top 50 in the Pinot Noir Challenge. These were the 2022 Castle Rock Estate ‘A&W’ Pinot Noir and 2022 Castle Rock Estate ‘Diletti’ Pinot Noir

GOLD MEDAL: 2022 Castle Rock Estate ‘A&W’ Pinot Noir
SILVER MEDAL: 2022 Castle Rock Estate ‘Diletti’ Pinot Noir
BRONZE MEDAL: 2022 Castle Rock Estate Pinot Noir

“The advancement the Australian wine community has made in understanding all the variables which make pinot noir in Australia something truly remarkable, is outstanding.” Australian Pinot Noir Challenge
