Castagna

The elegantly labelled wines of Castagna come from 4 ha of biodynamically managed estate shiraz and viognier being established (the latter making up 15% of the total). Winemaker Julian Castagna is intent on making wines which reflect the terroir as closely as possible, and declines to use cultured yeast or filtration.James Halliday

    "Mixture of saignee and direct press. Spends time in old oak, and part in concrete egg. More weighty than previous releases, or so it seems, texturally as much as anything. It’s classified as a rosé but it almost sits in its own domain. It has a power...
