Castle Rock Estate still seem to be flying under the radar. The Tyranny of distance perhaps, being so far from the major population centres of Australia. Regardless of this or any other contributing factor, the wines are well made by a diligent and talented hand.
Castle Rock Estate, Shiraz, Porongurup, 2017
Definitely playing in the cool climate spectrum of shiraz, with blueberry and ground pepper, over fresh cut beefsteak, baking spices, liqueur cherry chocolate and plum finishing with an earthy/sweet beet. A smooth, earthen palate: Focused dark cherry and plum redolent with woody cedar and black peppercorn spice. A more-ish texture and a medium length finish. Top value.
