The style of Gamay we produce uses a combination of  traditional Gamay 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 bouquet of the 2018 Gamay is showing spicy dark plum with a hint of cherry. These fruits follow through onto the palate combining with the dusty tannins and sound acid to create a savoury and spicy long lingering finish.

This wine will cellar for at least 8 years.

Producers notes

Sorrenberg is a 2.5 hectare vineyard which is owned by Barry and Jan Morey and situated on the outskirts of Beechworth.

It is surrounded by forest on two sides and Stony Creek runs across the back boundary.

The area was selected for viticulture because of its cool climate and favourable granitic soil. The undulating site provides good drainage and the northern aspect ensures full ripeness is achieved even with the later ripening varieties.

To achieve maximum quality and potential, the vines at Sorrenberg are closely planted on a single fruiting wire. Foliage wires are used to achieve good berry exposure. The vines were planted in 1985 and our first vintage was in 1989. Our main varieties are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Gamay with smaller quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Semillon and Pinot Noir for the blends we are well known for.

The grapes are processed at the vineyard and traditional methods are used in the wine making process with fermentation being carried out in French Barriques. Our policy is to produce hand made wines and our low production allows individual attention to be given to each barrel of wine thereby ensuring maximum quality and flavor. We have been using sustainable farming methods in the vineyard from early on and have been certified Demeter by the Biodynamic Research Institute Powelltown since 2008.
