Harlequin is a golden-coloured wine blended from multiple varieties grown by local Beechworth vignerons.
The 2014 creation by Julian and Adam Castagna is a blend of Roussanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier which was fermented on skins to achieve greater palate weight, mouthfeel and spice.
It’s a grown-up version of amber wine designed to be consumed at cellar temperature alongside food. This is an exemplary version of skin contact white wine for connoisseurs of the wine style.
What It Tastes Like
“Golden amber. Texture is the thing. It’s fresh but it’s powerful, with honey and fresh stonefruits, spice and honeydew. Fascinating wine. It’s been let off the leash but it still manages to keeps itself nice, or as far at least as it wishes. Tightens beautifully through the finish; it wraps its arms around you.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

About the Producer
One of the icons of the Beechworth wine scene, Castagna is a force of nature. With patriarch Julian Castagna at the helm, this has become one of the prized sites along the famed Beechworth ‘Golden Mile’. The wines, predominantly unique blends of Rhone Valley (and occasionally Italian) varieties, have a power and a presence all of their own. Loved by avid collectors for their remarkable longevity, these are wines of distinct personality.
Beechworth is a small wine producing region with a big reputation. The distinctive terroir in this part of the country produces some of our most iconic wines. If you want serious Chardonnay or Rhone-inspired Shiraz/Syrah, you want to get to know Beechworth. Some of the most powerful cool climate wines in the country hail from here, and some of our future stars are making it their home. The future looks very bright for this champion Victorian region.
