Castagna Sparkling Genesis Syrah 2015 (6 Bottles) Beechworth

$485.00 GST Included


“This could one day be regarded as the finest sparkling red ever produced in Australia (2005 Vintage)” Campbell Mattinson

This is a serious Sparkling Red. The nose is deep and compelling; black, brooding, with hints of sweet ripe, cherry-to-plum fruit, then sweet leather – old leather, with a lick of boot polish that smells both intriguing and inviting.

Then come notes of cracked black pepper and dried thyme, with just a touch of star anise. The palate is supple, earthen, rich and round with a fine dry spice – vibrant and alive, with a long savoury finish. It has zero dosage, very well balanced, the fruit and tannin deliver wonderful fruit sweetness, and is best served just a bit below room temperature, certainly not cold. A wine of spicy complexity and structured elegance.



About Castagna Vineyard, Beechworth

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

We make natural wines of terroir. Our intention is to make, as simply as possible, wine which is an expression of the place where it is grown. The wines of Castagna are multi-awarded and are at the forefront of the new Australia and are fully certified biodynamic.

Our soil mainly consists of decomposed granitic-loam with a predominance of quartz particles on a base of clay. Vines, through photosynthesis, convert air, light and heat from the ethereal into the material. Air, light heat – into – taste, colour aroma.
All estate-grown fruit is certified bio-dynamic
The vineyard is hand-pruned and the fruit is hand-picked

We crop at a little less than two tons per acre.

The winemaking is traditional using only indigenous yeast, and that, combined with minimal interference, is the key to achieving vitality and complexity.

Elevage varies between 18-20 months using only the very best, tight-grain French oak available.
