Winery Note:

This wine is a wonderful introduction to the wines of Castagna. Showing an array of rich, ripe, plumy flavours, black berries and savoury flashes of smoky bacon, it is a vineyard blend of Shiraz, Viognier and Sangiovese. The wine combines a powerful earthiness with tones of saddle leather, dried herbs and violets – it speaks powerfully of the land from whence it came. The fruit is rich plum with charry overtones, the palate is dominated by sweet black fruit, and, as always in Castagna, very fine grain tannins. This wine needed time in glass and has been held in cool storage for the last six years. It was held back so we would have something to release instead of the 2011 vintage. I am delighted by its development. The vineyard characters are now very evident – black cherry, liquorice and floral notes of damp roses now coming to the fore – good wine always tells its own story in its own time. On the palate the impact is of lush, ripe, black berries with masses of silky fine tannins. It has evolving into a wine that delivers warmth and assurance which will provide drinking pleasure  over the next 6 to 10 years.

Winery Note:

Our intention is to make, as simply as possible, wine which is an expression of the place where it is grown.

The Castagna Vineyard is situated at an altitude of 500 metres five-and-a-half kilometres outside the beautiful town of Beechworth in Northeast Victoria, high in the foothills of the Australian Alps.

Our soil consists mainly of decomposed granitic-loam on a base of clay. The climate is distinctly Mediterranean with hot days and cool nights during the important part of the growing season. The land is farmed biodynamically; using Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic principles, because we believe it is the best way to achieve optimum fruit quality that best expresses its terroir.

The vineyard is hand-pruned and the fruit is hand-picked. We crop at a bit less than two tons per acre. The winemaking is very traditional using only our own vineyard’s indigenous yeast with minimal interference. Elevage varies between 18-20 months using only the very best, tight grain French oak available, about half of which is new each year.
