Named after a prominent nearby landmark, Castle Rock Estate is nestled on the eastern slopes of the Porongurup mountains.

The winery has been built in a way that makes use of the natural slope of the land with wine moved via gravity. Not only is this a more sustainable process, but gentler on the wine thus retaining quality. Castle Rock Estate is actively reducing their carbon footprint; their winery is solar powered, all waste water is treated with a pond aerator (100% solar powered), they utilise only rain water and use no pesticides or insecticides.

"Within the winery we minimise winemaker intervention where possible to maintain a wine’s varietal expression. Avoiding unnecessary skin contact, maceration and oxidation is how we achieve this with white varieties. Whereas when working with red varieties, we follow more traditional winemaking methods such as the use of oak barrels, whole bunch fermentations, and extended maceration to build complexity and structure, but never at the detriment of varietal expression."

“Opens with an exotic aroma of vibrant strawberry with slightly savoury nuances, it’s an engaging perfumed bouquet. The palate captures the season beautifully with a mix of sweet supple fruit with a dry savoury nuance supported by fine chalky tannins. It delivers a real burst of fruit intensity with the combination of 25% new oak and 16% whole bunch adding to its structure and mid-palate power.” 94pts | Ray Jordan | Wine Pilot
