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. 2018 Cabernet Blend release is an absolute gem adding another great wine to its already outstanding portfolio.

 

2018 Cabernet Blend
Usually $60 - Special Offer $54

Sure, the chardonnay and sauvignon blanc semillon take the limelight, but, here ya go, the red blend that Jan and Barry Morey love to offer to us. Biodynamic for ages, lo-fi winemaking for ever, a beautiful place in Beechworth run by beautiful humans. What’s not to like?

This is to like. A softer and more succulent expression of this wine has emerged from 2018 harvest. It feels very bright, licked at by blood orange acidity, though there’s layers of flavour in dark cherry, black plum, cola and fennel-green herb characters through and through. Extension of flavour is great too – lingering smudges of lightly grippy, skinsy, mineral flecked tannin are a charm. It feels so darn lovely to drink, though it feels best approached in a few years to a few decades. A great wine, again.

Bannockburn

 

 

With Matt Holmes now hitting his straps, a quiet revolution has been underway at Bannockburn. Of course, with James Halliday score of 99 points for the 2017 Serré, the revolution is now a little less quiet. On the Chardonnays, Holmes is steering the wines towards a much racier, mouth-watering expression. There’s less emphasis on lees and oak and more vibrant acidity and freshness. Have no fear, there is no shortage of power—that’s something that the Bannockburn vineyards always deliver....Matt Holmes’ current releases are talking the talk.
Distributors Notes

 

2019 Chardonnay
Usually $63 - Special Offer $55

I reckon I’ve published about 40 reviews so far today, so thought I’d treat myself to a bit of Chardonnay (not having any rosé to hand).

True to style with a creamy flavour, but whipped into shape by lime juice and tight acidity. There’s a little spice, a sea spray and white flower freshness, white nectarine, firm and flinty texture, and a spiced biscuit-y finish of excellent length. Dry and glossy. Tense but generous. It’s a wine of contrasts and intensity. An excellent release here.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front- 95 Points
