Tasting Notes

Adam's Rib White is a blend of two noble white varietals Chardonnay and Viognier. Gently saline, with savoury whiffs over apple, pear scents and throw in some stone fruit. Mouth-filling texture with juiciness and richness finishing nutty, lightly salty, fresh. A generous and textural white done well.

Halliday Companion - Campbell Mattinson

Chardonnay and viognier. Highly textured and flavoured. Honeysuckle and white peach, ginger spice and a tickle of tropical fruit. Almond milk. A chalkiness to the finish. Plenty to appreciate. At its drinking peak now.

The Wine Front - Mike Bennie

Gently saline, gently savoury whiffs over apple, pear scents and throw in some stone fruit, apricot ok, then you’re somewhere near the bouquet. Mouth-filling texture with juiciness and richness on its side, though the wine finishes nutty, lightly salty, fresh. It’s generous and textural as a white, a more rich and generous style done well.

Castagna

Julian and Carolann Castagna left their careers in the film industry to establish Castagna Vineyard. They aimed to create unique wines capturing the essence of Côte-Rôtie, a style then rare in Australia. Located in Northeast Victoria, the vineyard, certified organic and biodynamic, features Syrah vines planted in 1997, descendants of 1850s Rhone stock. With a focus on quality over quantity, their meticulous approach includes hand-pruning, hand-picking, traditional winemaking techniques, and careful aging in French oak. The vineyard's biodynamic practices highlight the granitic-loam soil's minerality, and they utilize rare genetic material from Australia to craft exceptional wines. The vineyard's continental climate and unique soil composition further contribute to their distinctive wines. Castagna Vineyard has successfully carved out its niche in the world of wine.
