2019 Sorrenberg Gamay Beechworth – Sorrenberg is a certified biodynamic vineyard which is owned by Barry and Jan Morey and situated on the outskirts of Beechworth. The finesse and elegance of Sorrenberg wines can be attributed to the fact that it is one of the highest vineyards on granite soil in the Beechworth region.
The style of Gamay Sorrenberg produce is a combination of Burgundian and Beaujolais techniques. There is 10% Pinot Noir used in the blend. Half of the Gamay was cold macerated where the fruit is picked cold, crushed and left to soak for 4 days before fermentation starts. Of the rest, 20% of the fruit is left whole in the ferment. Fermentation with natural yeast is for 2 weeks on skins, after which the wine is pressed and matured in oak for eleven months.
The 2019 is showing aromatics of sour cherry, red berries and hints of cardamom spice. The red berry fruit carries through onto the palate where fine grain tannins and natural acidity combine with earthy undertones to develop a balanced palate with a lingering finish.
This wine will cellar for at least 8 years.
