The magnificence of choice harvests Frankland River and Mount Barker, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, are assembled into an exquisitely perfumed wine of defined, muscular structure and elegant, supportive tannins. Impenetrable blackberry and bramble fruit, liquorice and cassis, are all framed by its length of fine layered tannins and polished new oak. An outstanding construct, from one of the most superlative Cabernet growing appellations on the continent, Castelli offers the excellence and grace to accompany the finest gourmandise.
Fruit is cold soaked for ten days of maceration before being inoculated to Clos and F15 yeasts for a warm vinification at temperatures of 25°C to 30°C. Ferments are pumped over twice daily, and treated to several rack and returns for gentle tannin extraction and clarification. After three to four weeks of ferments, aimed at achieving optimal tannin development and perfect balance, components are filled to a high proportion of new, predominately Bossuet and D’Aquitaine French oak barriques for a luxurious fifteen months maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Deep garnet. Sweet blackberries and cassis, liquorice and dark chocolate nose. Medium to full bodied palate supported by fine layered tannins, a solid core of fruit that's perfectly against bright berry acids and affable vanillan oak. Malbec adds muscularity and flesh, rounding out the tannin backbone. Powerfully structured, with the weight of fruit to match bold beef recipes or rare game meats.

About the Castelli Winery
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»
