About The Wine
With new varieties going in the ground at home base of Castagna, the range is expanding.
This is a new release from off-site. It's Chenin Blanc in peak form.
The inaugural release of this wine is sensational. It's a complex, powerful Chenin that has that wonderful 'Castagna Texture'. All of the white wines in the Castagna portfolio carry weight and presence in the glass. This is no different.
If you're an enthusiast of the variety, this is a must-try for top-notch Australian examples.
Castagna is one of the leading producers of the Beechworth region.
In 1997, Julian and Carolann Castagna packed up their city life and moved into and caravan on a bare patch of dirt in the Beechworth region of north-east Victoria. Farmed biodynamically from the get go, the Castagnas planted their vineyard with a view to making complex Syrah in the mode of Cote-Rotie and savoury, structural Italian varieties that could compete with their European counterparts.
It's a wildly successful family business that they have built, with son Adam stepping into the winemaking role and a sea of adoring wine collectors awaiting each new release. Castagna wines are true wines of terroir. They taste of where they come from as do all of the great wines of the world.
