Product Notes

The 2018 Genesis is both complex and savoury; a very elegant wine. It is medium-bodied, yet with great length and a very expressive bouquet of spice â€?cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise â€?together with cedary nuances, which add complexity. It is very stylish with hints of charcuterie â€?very nice.

“It’s at once meaty, berried and savoury with earthy, brambly things. Indeed, when I write that, it feels like I should say ‘my kinda shirazâ€?as a qualifier.â€?- Mike Bennie in Winefront

“For me Genesis is indisputably the finest Syrah in the country. An impeccably poised paradigm of eminent drinkability and exceptional taste. Biodynamic certification is one thing, but the detail infused by life’s experiences, far and wide, drinking the world’s great wines, is another. Refined by virtue of long-limbed tannins, dutiful freshness and archetypal cool climatic aromas of lilac, star anise, cardamon, bracken, smoked charcuterie, blueberry green olive and iodine, all impeccably strung across a skein of peppery freshness tailing long. Mercifully, without a skerrick of reduction, the bane of so much domestic gear. But things are becoming warmer, even on the granitic screes of sub-alpine Beechworth. Subsequently Castagna picked the 2018 across a number of passes through the vineyard, ensuring a sum of herbal lift, ripeness, and tension. The extraction, too, a little gentler. Forward and a littler plumper than most years, perhaps, yet I would never think this mid-weighted wine from a hot year unless I was told. Delicious already but will hold and develop nicely across the mid-term.â€?- Ned Goodwin MW
