Castelli Estate Chardonnay
This is a lovely example of restrained and intense cool climate Chardonnay. Each of our two Pemberton vineyards provides different elements of power, complexity and balance to the wine. There is an array of aromatics of cumquat, grapefruit with some underlying toasted hazelnuts emanating from the glass. 100% barrel fermentation in French Oak provides a lovely textural component and nuances of gunflint and creamy richness. The finely woven palate with a precise mineral core shows great length and focus and will suit cellaring over the next 8-10 years
Castelli Estate wines are produced in an idyllic setting on Mount Shadforth in Denmark. The Castelli family’s winemaking philosophy is simple; the best fruit from the southern regions of Western Australia, handcrafting wines of individuality and character. There is a fair bit of country to cover in search of the best fruit, but when that hard work pays off in the bottle, the memory of the miles travelled quickly fades.
