Description

Quietly spoken and considered winemaker Rob Diletti is renowned for his ability to coax the best from every parcel of fruit and vineyard that he handles, and for producing wines that year after year amass an unbelievable amount of high reviews, trophies and medals. Rob is also an extremely well-regarded and sought-after wine judge at shows around Australia, and contract winemaker for a large number of estates in and around the Porongurup sub-region. 

Castle Rock Estate was founded in the Porongroups in 1983 and from humble beginnings has grown into a 55ha property. 

The Wines
The riesling, pinot noir and shiraz are the heroes of the Castle Rock range. The rieslings have proven themselves to be exceedingly well suited to long-term cellaring, but are still approachable in their youth thanks to the white floral characterics of the Porongurup sub-region.  The pinot noir is famed for its consistency and silky, red cherry fruit, and the cool climate syrah is a shining light for the style.  Other wines include sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet franc, merlot and a dessert wine.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door features expansive views of the Porongurup range, and is open 7 days, 10am - 5pm.
