Sorrenberg Gamay 2011

Flag-bearer for the variety in Australia, classic packaging too depicting the Beechworth clock tower. Iconic in some respects, and the quality of the booze within backs it up.

Gamay (90%) with a little Pinot Noir (10%) provides a charcuterie and peppercorn nose, supported by black cherry and savoury character.  

Tangy, sour, meat and black pepper palate, a magnificent penetrating line of acid delivering savoury length. 

Shows Gamay in a slightly darker, sullen, moodier guise – yet still with a generosity and liveliness – a magnificent example. 93 - Very Good

Tasted on: Tuesday 29th January, a Fruit Day
