- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Great Southern has become a true haven for the value wine shopper. So much great wine being made in the West and with a string of happy vintages under their belt of late, even the lower price point wines deliver a lot of bang for your buck. The Sum Riesling punches a class or two above its weight. It's sourced from good sites across the Mt Barker region and for under $15, this is just about all you could want in a crisp dry white. Bargain hunters take note.
What it Tastes Like
Lemon sherbet and granny smith apple. It's nicely tangy with a zippy and cleansing finish. Enough generous flavour to give it some get up and go and some tonic like refreshment to close. An above average Riesling at this price.
Sourced from the Mt Barker region of Great Southern. Fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to prevent oxidation and retain flavour. Some post crushing, cold maceration skin contact was employed to increase flavour extraction. Only the free run fraction (530L/T) was used and fermented at 12-14 °C using a neutral yeast to enhance the varietal expression.
Closure: Screw Cap

About the Producer
Castelli Wines is one of the true juggernauts of the Great Southern wine region. With vineyards scattered across the entire sprawling region, Castelli have been a force for quality and value for more than a decade.
The Great Southern is the largest wine region in the country. Though more and more, the label “Great Southern” is becoming redundant. It is the sub-regional exploration of terroir which is distinguishing this region. From Frankland River to Porongorup, from Mount Barker to Denmark, the detailed and stylish wines emerging from these sub-regions are some of the most intriguing in the country. No longer a “poor man’s Margaret River”, whether you love Riesling, Cabernet, Shiraz or Pinot, this stunning cool climate region will blow you away with the value and refinement inherent in everything it produces. And the good thing is, it is only getting better.
Riesling is the king of white grapes. With unparalleled versatility, it rightfully carries the ‘Noble’ name tag. We make extraordinary Riesling in Australia, from far and wide. From the classic searing, razor-sharp styles in the Clare and Eden Valleys to the fragrant and enchanting wines of the Great Southern, Australian Riesling is a chameleon that can take on many forms. Sweet, steely, lean or textured, the world of Riesling is a thing of wonder that should be explored by all true lovers of wine.
