Castagna 2013 Genesis Syrah

“It displays nicely evolving tannins and juicy acidity, and comes as something of a surprise in this line-up of big-hitters and traditionalists. But it’s a spot-on, classy surprise.” Decanter Magazine’s Australian Shiraz Panel Tasting

$85.00

Notes

“A really vital, lifted wine with elegant, savoury fruit dancing on a silky palate. What a joy after so many over-oaked examples! It has a supple, velvety mouthfeel and beautiful purity of red fruits, supported by dusty, spicy oak. Delicious.” Tina Gellie

A savoury, whole-bunch style, the stalkiness carried well by the fruit. I love the perfumed, fruity element on the palate, which shows fine evolution.” Roger Jones

“There’s lots of energy and verve to the medium-bodied, charmingly textured raspberry red fruit, which is tinged with spice. It displays nicely evolving tannins and juicy acidity, and comes as something of a surprise in this line-up of big-hitters and traditionalists. But it’s a spot-on, classy surprise.” Anthony Rose
