2019 Castagna Allegra Rose


Region: Beechworth, Victoria

Viticulture: Biodynamic

Winemaker; Julian Castagna

Established Date: 1997

Wine Info

Shiraz Viognier rose. It’s barrel fermented, released with a little bottle maturity, but maintains it’s youthful freshness and liveliness, even with the age. A savory, dry style of pink wine.


Sommelier’s Recommendation

A rose with more complexity than most, due to the shiraz, viognier blend. On the nose savoury dried herbs formed around a core of red cherry fruit- with a hint of honey. The palate red cherry and anise- ripe and textural with just a hint of tannin. A rose which can be drank all year around!

Winery  Backstory

The vineyard was planted in 1997 on what was previously grazing land. Five different clones of Syrah are grown, all of which are progeny of the original 1850s stock imported into Australia from the Rhone.

The land has been farmed biodynamic from the very beginning and it is this farming method that allows the minerality that is in this ancient granitic soil to show through in the wine
