Castle Rock Estate [Porongurup WA], "Diletti" Chardonnay 2017

This flagship Castle Rock 2107 "Diletti" Chardonnay massaged and released by winemaker Rob Diletti pays homage to his family heritage.
It reflects the winemaker's philosophy of balancing fruit ripeness with the structure,  complexity and tightness of cool climate Chardonnay characters.
Toasted brioche aromas and flavours intermingle in a framework of rockmelon, lemon pith and mouth-watering acid and minerality.
Lingering wafts of marzipan, vanillin oak and primary varietal fruit freshness entice to yet another glass
This is an eminently enjoyable Chardonnay of complexity and texture, reflective of its terroir which will continue to mature and please with adequate cellaring
