It's no puzzling coincidence that the three noble grapes of Cotes du Rhône have endured as one of the wine world's most engaging, long lived accords. The plump, juicy sweetness of Grenache provides an amenable foil to the rustic tannins and pastoral earthiness of Mourvedre. Add a dash of peppery plum Shiraz and you have achieved a harmonious construct which drinks beautifully while fresh, beguiling and evocative after a term of bottle age.
Harvests of bush vine Grenache and Mourvedre are painstakingly picked by hand at optimal ripeness. Shiraz is vintaged slightly earlier in the season to capture and retain the fragrant spice of youthful berries. Batches are vinified in small open fermenters, Grenache and Shiraz are included with a measure of whole bunches to infuse aromatic lift. Ferments are hand plunged twice daily and pressed off quickly upon completion, transferred to a selection of well seasoned large format oak vats for an extended term of eighteen months maturation.

About Castelli Wines
Castelli are all about old world winemaking traditions, applied to the pick of fruit, grown to the finest vineyards across the great viticultural precincts of Western Australia
During a lifetime of annual visits back to his parents homeland, Luca Castelli grew up working in the vineyard alongside his grandfather Nonno Germino. After a career in power engineering and renewable energy, Luca became consumed by a dream of getting his hands dirty again amongst the vines once again. His brother Sam's passion for wine also began on the family farm back in Italy. Sam's extensive career in the engineering and construction sectors lead to the ASX-listed United Group Limited, an internationally active company with an annual turnover of two billion. He always remained keen however of picking grapes and delivering boxes of his homemade wine to customers. Castelli»
