The best shiraz I’ve had in a long time

The best shiraz I’ve had in a long time

I rarely post reviews but this just blew me away and thought that those of you not in Adelaide may not have got to see it – wonderful writing.

Something happened in the Shiraz class – a review by Phillip White

“The Castagna Genesis Beechworth Shiraz 2014 is 12.5% alcohol and $75. It contains “a touch of Viognier”. It is a magic drink.”

 “I like the way this vineyard has spent fifteen vintages morphing form extra-terrestrial, like that UFO 1999, through a maritime approach then back to shore after this new vintage takes a night emptying its sails of gust, nudges its rubbing stakes against the bar and starts unloading fruit on the wharf where the fresh flowers, herbs and spices are stacked up to the galvo.”

This fantastic review of our Castagna 2014 Genesis Syrah is now on the InDaily website and Phillip’s blog. A beautifully crafted review, of our beautifully crafted shiraz. Phillip never ceases to amaze us with his eloquent and picturesque writing, creating vivid images of our wines and vineyard in his reviews. Head to Phillip’s blog here, or InDaily,  to read the full review.

A clever wine lover created this little guy from a Castagna Sparkling Genesis cage. Danni has named him Sergio.
