2014 Castagna Adam's Rib The Red

Beechworth, VIC

Unique blend of Nebbiolo and Syrah made by second generation winemaker Adam Castagna.


The intention with Adam’s Rib is to make available, drinkable, affordable wines, but with lots of character.

About The Wine

Adam Castagna is a force of nature, one of the most vivacious and charismatic winemakers in the Beechworth region.

From his home vineyard and winery at Castagna, Adam crafts a small range of wines called 'Adam's Rib'. There's a red and a white released each vintage. The blend is dependant on what fruit is offered up from the season. In 2014 the pick of the fruit was Nebbiolo and Shiraz. The blend works a treat.

Of the 2014 release Campbell Mattinson wrote, "the story it describes is about pure pleasure". An easier and more accessible wine than the more statue-esque Castagna range, this is the perfect entry point into the unique wine of this great family owned estate.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"It fast builds momentum and never eases off throughout. Plenty of swish fruit here and the texture to go with it, but then the ropes come out and it’s all kept within a ring of fine tannin. Make no mistake though: this is a fruit-driven wine; the story it describes is about pure pleasure, in a dark berried and spice-strewn context." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
