Castle Rock ‘Skywalk’ Riesling 2023


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."

“Best White Wines Under $30. The 2023 Skywalk Riesling leads with a distinctly talc-y, mineral nose. It has all the delicacy and ephemeral nuance in the mouth as well. Despite its levity, it is long and persistent through the finish, spooling off into the distance, with white tea, jasmine, green apple skins, scratched lime zest and what feels like a million other tiny characters … like pulverized confetti. It’s such a pleasure to drink this. It’s pure and crystalline.” 95pts | Erin Larkin | Robert Parker Wine Advocate
