Oof, brilliant. Tight and lean, but enough pluck of flavour and trim of minerally things to ensure you’re locked in. Juicy, yep, just, mostly mineral, chalk and talc, lots of green juice, limey freshness, appley stuff, races away and feels steely and refreshing, So good to drink, so good to keep. 94 Points – Mike Bennie, The Winefront
The Porongurup region in the Great Southern of WA is highly regarded for its capacity to produce riesling of precision and drive. Castle Rock and winemaker and vigneron Rob Diletti have ridden that wave from the beginning, with other producers seeking out Rob’s winemaking prowess to give their riesling fruit every chance of flourishing in the bottle.
Still a relatively young region, we are still anxiously observing just how long these piercingly focused rieslings can thrive and evolve in the bottle. This wine is poised to push those boundaries. A bright and intense yellow in the glass. The nose is equally intense, lemon pith and flesh, ripest grapefruit. A wine of tremendous drive, lime essence carries the palate, pure and pristine. Will live for quite some time. 95 Points – Nick Butler, The Real Review
