The legendary Sorrenberg of Victoria's Beechworth region has an almost mythical status, with their wines some of the most sought-after in Australia. Sadly due to the impact of bushfires in 2020, there were no wines produced under the Sorrenberg estate label from the vintage.
The good news is Sorrenberg managed to produce some wines under their declassified 'Inkerman Rd' label, with all fruit coming from Sorrenberg estate vineyards. Given its reputation as one of Australia's preeminent Gamay producers, we expect our very limited stocks of this 2020 Sorrenberg Inkerman Road 'Gamay et al.' to be snapped up quickly.
"The 2020 Inkerman Rd ‘Gamay et al’ is predominantly Gamay with some Merlot included. The fruit comes from our estate and was handpicked, chilled, crushed and lightly pressed, with a calculated amount of skin contact, followed by French oak barrel fermentation. The nose has nice bright fruit with some oak. The palate shows drying acid with subtle tannins, creating a lingering finish. It is ready to drink, and could also be served slightly chilled."- Sorrenberg Wines.
"92 Points. This has some smoke scents and flavours but they play like good Rhone reds or similar. Game meat, sour cherry, smoked meats, smoked paprika, and seem to steer away from acrid or distracting in the way some smoke taint can work. The palate is fresh feeling despite the game meat smokiness licking the heels of the wine, it feels like the flavours are lifted on the tang of pomegranate acidity, and include amaro-herbal things, sour cherry and a good slosh of rose water fruity sweetness too. It’s a pleasing drink, quietly complex and very nice to guzzle down. Tannins pucker gently to close. Attractive, is the message.
