CASTAGNA 2004 GENESIS SYRAH - Beechworth Vic
"If I were trying to make shiraz this is what i would be aiming for. It's ethereal, exotically spicy and meaty bouquet of dark cherries, cassis and sweet oak revels nuances of fennel and cloves, cinnamon and black pepper."
Jeremy Oliver, OnWine
"A bomb. An absolute beauty. A locomotice of intoxicating, violet-drenched scent, a meatiness and a pepperiness but not overtly so, the purest of pure kirsch and black berries and smoked pig and cedar, and then stinging, stunning, penetrating length. No alcohol heat. Not huge, but ripe. Exquisite oak handling. Yes."
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, Jul 2006
