Castagna Allegro Rose, Beechworth, Australia 2014
Regular price £23.50
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 warmer climate. From the high altitude foothills of the Australian Alps, just outside of Beechworth, he champions biodynamic principles – no chemicals are used and companion crops are planted so that the entire vineyard works as a thriving ecosystem.
Castagna Allegro Rose 2014
Made with Syrah and Viognier. Strong rose hip tea and floral scents with aromas of pepper, clove in the mix. Juicy in the palate but with light, crisp tannins keeping things tight and fine and fresh.
