Guided by biodynamic viticulture, hands-off winemaking, and scrupulous attention to particulars, Castagna Genesis Syrah emanates a robust and genuine character. Co-fermented with Viognier, the wine undergoes vinification and matures for 18 to 24 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels with a tight grain. Exhibiting intense aromatics and a refined palate, it presents profound dark fruit flavors, richness, vitality, and a touch of minerality.

“Genesis is an enigmatic puzzle of flavours …It’s a heroic wine for classicists only.” Matthew Jukes – Tyson Stelzer Taste Food & Wine 

Julian Castagna has very definite ideas about viticulture (biodynamic), winemaking (minimal interference), and a belief that too many wines are homogenised. It has personality; it overflows with dark berry to full-on black, with herbs, spices, polished leather and bramble, yet is finely drawn and perfectly balanced. It will live for as long as your patience lasts.” James Halliday
