In 2014 Rob Diletti, of Castle Rock Estate in Porongurup, Western Australia, was named first James Halliday Winemaker of the Year
Rob Diletti’s credentials as a winemaker speak for themselves.
He has been nominated in 2012 and 2019 for the “Winemaker of the Year”
(2019 to be announced) and has produce a multitude of Award-Winning wines.
Castle Rock Estate vineyard is nestled on the Eastern slopes of the Porongurup mountain at an altitude of 350 meters and is named after a prominent nearby landmark.
The position of the vineyard, which exposes the vines to cooling south-east breezes results in a prolonged growing season, enables the fruit to develop maximum varietal flavour and ripeness.
His tireless work in the Great Southern, Western Australia, has helped put the subregion of the Porongurup on the map with nothing less than world-class Rieslings. No mean feat for a small family winery.
As quoted in Australian Gourmet Wine Magazine
“The wines of Castle Rock Estate have purity, tension and grace, and speak loudly of their source area, as well as their maker.” Toni Paterson MW
