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.
This wine is the essence of what the Great Southern has to offer for Riesling. Sourced from four individual sub-regions of the Great Southern where each plays a role in bringing different characters to the overall wine. The lifted floral and rose petal aromas (essence of Mount Barker) are perfectly balanced on a central citrus/lime core (Albany, Porongurup influence) with talcy acidity and textural mid-palate weight (Frankland River). There are some very attractive nuances of perfumed stone fruit and crushed wildflowers. Typical of Great Southern Rieslings, the wine is very attractive in its youth but the biggest smiles will be with those who have the patience to cellar for 10-15 years.- Castelli Wines.
