Castle Rock Estate [Porongurup WA], Porongurup Riesling 2019

Owner / Winemaker Rob Diletti has again crafted a superb young Riesling reflective of the Great Southern region of WA.
Even in its primacy, it is teasingly velvety with a tightly structured backbone.
Steely acid grips a core of vibrantly fresh fruit in the lime blossom minerally spectrum.
This well-integrated, fragrant 2019 offering showcases the best varietal attributes from that region, refreshingly different from some of the more notable Rieslings from other areas.
It is a Riesling of temperament and distinction which will reward mid-term cellaring whilst delivering ample palate pleasure now
