Castagna 'Un Segreto' Syrah Sangiovese 2016

"An ethereal feel set to shimmying, gently bitter tannins, blood orange-laced acidity, sweet kirsch lingering and a light pucker forms. So measured, pure-feeling, detailed and magnificent to drink." 96pts - 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. 

"One of those wines that smells good even as you swallow it. It's lavender-like and blueberried, with suede leather, black cherry and woodsy spice notes rippling through. It has a beautiful spread of flavour-infused tannin and convincing length. It's not by any stretch a big wine; it neither wants to be nor needs to be. It takes prettiness and gives it a gravity." 94pts - Campbell Mattinson - Wine Companion

"Strong aromas of ripe berry, kirsch, dark chocolate and sweet, new leather. Flesh yet weightlessness in the palate – an ethereal feel set to shimmying, gently bitter tannins, blood orange-laced acidity, sweet kirsch lingering and a light pucker forms. So measured, pure-feeling, detailed and magnificent to drink." 96pts - Mike Bennie - WineFront
