About

About the Wine

The Sorrenberg Cabernet is a seriously classy mid-weight Cabernet blend. What an outstanding Australian producer they are.

Barry has made this wine since 1989 with fruit grown entirely from his own biodynamically farmed vineyard just outside Beechworth. The blend alters slightly each year, with portions of Cabernet Franc and Merlot added to the Cabernet Sauvignon base - Barry looking for elegance and suppleness in youth as well as age-ability.

The 2015 is another knockout release. The fruit reaching ripeness at moderate alcohol, the tannin structure is gorgeous. It's a wine to be enjoyed now or in a decade's time - classic stuff.

About Sorrenberg

Barry and Jan Morey planted their stunning Beechworth vineyard in 1986. Their first release in 1989 began the Sorrenberg story, a story destined to be one of Australia's great estates.

Barry farms with adherence to biodynamics, believing this to be the best way to get the most out of his home block of 2.4 Ha. on the outskirts of Beechworth. Their wines are famous for their balance and longevity. The wines are made in traditional fashion, with wild yeasts for fermentation, gentle oak maturation and basket pressing for each wine.

The Gamay is arguably their most sought after wine, however, the thumbprint of Barry's attention to detail is stamped across each release and the Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Cabernet blend are amongst the finest of heir kind in the country.

Sorrenberg is one of the true gems of Beechworth, and indeed Australian, wine.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The nose is very approachable with hints of black fruits, dark chocolate and cigar box. Following through onto the palate combining with lifted florals, subdued dusty tannins and balanced acidity it creates an activated and alive palate with great length and finish." - Sorrenberg

Additional Info

From the Producer

Low crop level is important to ensure the fruit ripens if the weather turns and to achieve maximum flavour. Half this Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented for 2 weeks on skins with plunging of the cap 4 times a day. The remainder of this wine was fermented for 4 weeks on skins before pressing. Natural yeast is used throughout. The wine undergoes oak maturation for 24 months before final blending and bottling without filtration.
