About

The Genesis Syrah from Castagna is one of Beechworth’s, and indeed Victoria’s, most iconic wines.

Since the inaugural release in 1999, Genesis has been loved and revered by critic and punter alike. Through the 15 vintages since it’s first, the wine has changed and matured as the vines on this special site sink deeper into their hillside soils.

Julian and Adam Castagna make the wine. The 2014 release is Syrah “with a dash of Viognier”.

This is a truly gorgeous release fit for the finest dinner tables and glassware. It’s to be savoured now or in a decade.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s a quieter wine than it once was, less flash but more nuance. It’s the vineyard playing its life out, offering different sides to its personality. Or the vineyard combined with the vintage conditions served. We get the meat and the smoke, the spice and the licorice, the belt of black cherry. We get it all with a fresh face too, with a slip of green garden herbs, and with terrific linger to the finish. It has Burgundian syrah, for want of a better phrase, written all over it. It will age into a complex beauty but it has to be said, it’s drinking like a charm now.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
