Tasting Notes

This might be the only Australian Shiraz Viognier Rose. Yup. Strong rose hip tea and floral scents with aromas of pepper, clove in the mix. Juicy in the palate but with light, crisp tannins keeping things tight and fine and fresh. Back palate acidity is epic, tart and tangy, a feature, and amaro-laced flavours linger. Serious but seriously drinkable. Outstanding.

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.
