Tasting Notes

A complex Sauvignon Blanc that shows fruit characters which have been complemented by the inclusion of juice solids and partial barrel fermentation.

Colour: Very pale straw colour.

Bouquet: The nose is subdued and understated, due to the partial barrel ferment, with soft lemon blossom and citrus fruits creating a fresh and inviting bouquet.

Palate: A fresh and clean palate, with prominent citrus and tart tropical flavours. The inclusion of barrel ferment adds a subtle foil of complexity to balance the fruit weight. There is a seamless nature to the wine from the front to the back of the palate, with all components in perfect harmony. A crisp acid back bone gives the wine great balance, structure and a clean, long finish.

Food Accompaniment: Ideal aperitif wine, will also accompany fish, chicken and pasta.

Cellaring potential: This wine is made to enjoy now, while the fruit characters are lifted and vibrant. Yet, if it gets lost in your cellar, the quality of the fruit and the acid structure ensures that it will still be lively and drinking very will within eight to ten years.

Previous Vintage Reviews

94 Points “The Porongurup Range is a place of great beauty. If you haven’t been, you really must add it to the list. Castle Rock Estate is a great place to start: not only are the wines sensational, but the positioning of the vineyard on top of the hill … well that’s pretty impressive, too. As for this wine; cool, elegant, and clearly made by a riesling maker, such is its purity and finesse. 2021 was responsible for delicate wines and this is a wonderful example.” Halliday Wine Companion 2023, Erin Larkin

91 Points “Pretty darn delicious. Lemony, limey tang to the fore with lots of refreshment factor, a good deal of concentration and green herbal elements that lift and freshen the wine to thirst-slaking zestiness. There’s pleasing slipperiness to the texture and the wine extends well to a cool, mouth-watering finish. Excellent drinking to be had with strong varietal input.” Halliday Wine Companion 2023, Mike Bennie
