Castelli Estate has been a long-time favourite winery of ours that's now firmly established itself as a bona fide star of Western Australian wine. The 2019 Castelli Estate Shiraz is a rich, flavoursome example of Great Southern Shiraz that is a product of another ideal vintage in the region.
Opening with lifted aromatics of blueberry compote with overlaid spice, black pepper and licorice hints. The medium to full-bodied palate displays typical cool climate opulence and layered tannins perfectly integrated with savoury, tight grained French Oak. Although attractive in its youth, the depth and structure allow the wine to be confidently cellared over 10-12 years.
"94 Points. On skins for 12 days, matured for 16 months in French oak (30% new). This wine is routinely impressive, and this cool-year iteration is no exception. 2019 has imbued it with a medium-weight body, as opposed to the usually muscular and savoury countenance that we have become used to. Yet, it is concentrated and silky, with layers of mulberries, raspberries, licorice and spice through the finish. 14.6% alc. Screwcap"- Erin Larkin, winecompanion.com.au.
