Glancing down the valley from the hills of Mt Shadforth, you will see what is one of Western Australia’s most beautiful, and eye catching wineries – Castelli Estate. From its Tudor style architecture and the winery’s stone walls, or the grand arches in our underground barrel room or under our winery’s acutely pitched roof, the facility evinces beauty to match its functionality. Castelli’s winemakers concentrate on achieving symmetry in each wine. For white wines the interaction of fruit intensity, acid profile, phenolic extraction and oak (if used) are carefully assessed. Likewise in the reds, there is a delicate balance aimed for between tannin structure, fruit definition, alcohol level and oak integration. Since the wineries inception in 2004, the wines have built up a cult following as well as amassing a impressive number of medals and trophies, including the 2011 Riesling scooping the pool at WA’s biggest wine show, The Perth Royal Wine Show, with trophies for Best West Australian Wine, the Best Western Australian White Table Wine and Best 2011 Vintage Dry White Table Wine. Wine scribes have also fallen in love with Castelli wine style, with the winery rated 5 stars in James Halliday Wine Guide. Join the winery’s e-Newsletter or Facebook group to be notified of future concerts and events at the winery, following on from stellar performances by The Waifs, The John Butler Trio, Jimmy Barnes & Booker T Jones.
