Castle Rock Estate [Porongurup WA], 'Skywalk' Riesling 2021

Winemaker Rob Diletti has released three 2021 Castle Rock Rieslings from the Porongurup Ranges of Great Southern [WA]
This 2021 Skywalk Riesling is named after the panoramic suspended walkway on the local granite Castle Rock outcrop
This wine, whilst still very young and vibrant, already delivers a thrust of primary characteristics of grapefruit, musk and straw. The zesty natural acid supports the primacy of the fruit
It is slightly more phenolic than its siblings due to the free-run juice closer to the skins
This imparts mid-palate rounded savouriness, flavour and grip
It is a very enjoyable drop now but will reward some cellaring

Price: $21
