In 2004, the Castelli’s dream of a family-owned winery became a reality when, upon the slopes of Mt Shadforth, the Castelli Estate property was purchased - A 120 acre farm which overlooks Wilson’s Inlet, Mt. Lindesay and the lush countryside around Denmark.

The property was acquired with a semi-complete winery which, with the family’s extensive construction and engineering experience, was later completed in 2006. With a strong commitment to quality, the next twelve months were spent putting together a highly talented winemaking team. The Castelli family enticed winemakers Mike Garland and Andrew Hoadley to come on board in what were the beginnings of one of today’s most promising Western Australian boutique wine brands.

Through our dedicated winemaking team’s extensive experience, the sourcing of the state’s best fruit and the family’s passion and commitment to quality, Castelli Estate’s wines hold the promise of something special.

With our name on every bottle, we are proud to bring you what is synonymous with the Castelli name: a passion for wines that are made with a relentless commitment to quality.

Tasting Notes: In the glass the colour hints of pale straw. The aromatics are typical of the two great Riesling areas: Mt Barker region with a generous supply of lifted orange blossom and rose petals underlying crushed limes and white peach characters, whilst Frankland River contributes exciting grapefruit zest with hints of spice. These flavours are carried through onto a tightly wound palate that has a lovely lime/citrus like essence. As with most Great Southern Rieslings, this wine is lovely in its youth, however, for those with patience the reward from 6-8 years careful cellaring will be worth it.

Winemaking: Fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to prevent oxidation and retain flavour. Some post crushing, cold maceration skin contact was employed to increase flavour extraction. Only the free run fraction (530L/T) was used and fermented at 12-14°C using a variety of yeasts to enhance the varietal expression.
