Castle Rock is situated in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, with a reputation for exceptional Rieslings that are elegant in their youth and develop complexity and further palate weight with age.
This 2022 Castle Rock Porongurup Riesling is the 36th vintage of this wine, which has now established itself among Australia's truly great Rieslings. The palate is tightly wound structure that is enveloped by beautiful rich lime juice fruit characters. This fruit richness provides generosity and succulence with the natural acidity adding lovely structure, finesse and length. Lively, crisp and with an attractive delicacy now, this wine will blossom with age.
"A flagship wine of the Castle Rock Estate brand bringing together six Riesling blocks across the Porongurup range. Fermented in cool stainless steel tanks to highlight their rallying cry ‘Fruit is King’. Josephine pear skin, kaffir lime leaves and white acacia blossoms stand tall with a hint of galangal root. The wine is smart and snappy on the palate with a flavour intensity like a freight train. Plenty to love about this wine and, for Riesling nerds, this is a gem of a wine. Drink with plump oysters with a well made mignonette and you’ll feel like royalty. 93 Points. $30. Drink: 2022-2030"- Shanteh Wale, winepilot.com.
"This flagship wine is a blend of all six Riesling blocks and while it is fresh and lively now, it’s likely to still be looking good in a couple of decades. Like all good-looking sorts, it will probably even improve with age. It has a beautiful depth and purity of flavour, with green apple, lime and lemon notes, a little bit of floral and a lot of zesty minerality. With enticing kaffir lime and lemongrass aromas, it would pair nicely with Asian, fish and prawn dishes."- Christine Salins, psnews.com.au.
