The Castelli Estate Chardonnay is one of WA's most consistent Chardonnay's with Gold medal scores from wine companion in 7 out of 10 years, with silver in the other years.
The 2021 vintage is a lovely example of restrained and intense cool climate Chardonnay. Each of our two Pemberton vineyards provides different elements of power, complexity and balance to the wine. There is an array of aromatics of cumquat, grapefruit with some underlying toasted hazelnuts emanating from the glass. 100% barrel fermentation in French Oak provides a lovely textural component and nuances of gunflint and creamy richness. The finely woven palate with a precise mineral core shows great length and focus and will suit cellaring over the next 8-10 years.
