Castagna 'Growers Selection' Savagnin 2018

"Textural and rich feeling again in the palate, salty acidity underpinning ripe apples, pear, some preserved lemon characters. Complex, wonderful expression and wholly its own." 94pts - Mike Bennie - WineFront

More Information

Julian Castagna planted his Beechworth vineyard at a time when most Australian wineries were being seduced by Robert Parker’s gushing praise of thick, high-octane Shiraz. But that was not his style. Instead, he created wines of finesse, elegance and tension.

Embracing his Italian roots, Julian drew inspiration from the great wines of the old world, creating wines that pair well with food and thrive in our warmer climate. From the high altitude foothills of the Australian Alps, just outside of Beechworth, he championed the biodynamic principles set down by Rudolf Steiner. 

Embracing biodynamics from early on, Julian worked closely with biodynamic author Nicholas Joly in learning to understand micro-bacterial activity and living soils. No chemicals are used and companion crops are planted so that the entire vineyard works as a thriving ecosystem. 

"Savagnin sourced outside the estate of Castagna, a King Valley site. Whole bunch pressed, straight to barrel with a portion in ceramic egg and hangs out for a while. Highly aromatic style, quite rich perfume as savagnin does, firstly sea spray aromas then quince, ripe apple, faint caramel notes but doesn’t appear to be ripe or overdone, just an element of complexity. Textural and rich feeling again in the palate, salty acidity underpinning ripe apples, pear, some preserved lemon characters. Complex, wonderful expression and wholly its own." 94pts - Mike Bennie - WineFront
