Castle Rock Estate [Porongurup WA], Chardonnay 2020

This 2020 Castle Rock Chardonnay is one of a current-release trio which pays tribute to winemaker Rob Diletti's 20th vintage 
It is a  vibrant and multi-layered Chardonnay which ticks the boxes of freshness and vivacity
Chablis-like in style it nontheless displays typical New World muscularity and definition
The palate delivers a spectrum of freshly cut melon, subtle French oak vanillin and refeshing jubey acidity
The finish is long and well supported by wafts of freshly baked brioche and fruit primacy
This is a well-crafted, well-priced, bright and moreish Chardonnay by Rob Diletti and reflective of the region and vintage
It is one to be enjoyed fresh as an aperitif but will also reward some cellaring
