Sorry, this wine has now sold out
The legendary Sorrenberg of Victoria's Beechworth region has an almost mythical status, with their wines some of the most sought-after in Australia. The newly released 2021 Sorrenberg Sauvignon Semillon has been highly awaited, with no 2020 vintage of this wine being produced due to bushfires.
One of the finest examples of this blend made in Australia, the 2021 vintage of Sorrenberg Sauvignon Blanc Semillon will no doubt build on the impeccable reputation of this wine. A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon, this was 100% barrel fermented in primarily larger barrels. All went through natural yeast fermentation, with extended lees contact contributed to the wonderful complexity, weight and intensity of flavour this top-line white wine is famous for.
"96 Points. An anticipated release! What ho! Gosh, it feels like forever since the SBS was here. And a distinct personality, as always, for this wine, albeit in a different frame this release. Top flight, though. Sees a bit (eight hours for the sauvignon blanc) of skin contact and is barrel fermented, as always. Tightly wound. Very. A pent up and structured release with bony acidity under just-ripe stone fruit, lemon, young almond characters and flinty, slate-like mineral characters in spades. Yum. It’s steely and taut, a racier expression of this stellar wine, and good for it in refreshment factor, scintillating freshness and detail. Love it. As complex and layered as other releases? Perhaps not, but it positions itself in a different frame here, if not more serious in a way, or at least destined for longer cellaring time or enjoying over extended time tucked away. Bonza. Tasted: MAR22 13.3% alc. Price: $44 Cork Drink: 2022 - 2035+" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
'The nose of the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon shows bright and fresh citrus with a hint of gooseberry, following through onto the palate the citrus, gooseberry and ripening nashi shine through with crisp, balanced acid, giving the wine great length and a well-rounded lingering finish. This is one of the best we have seen for some years due to the cooler, ideal vintage conditions.'- Barry Morey, Winemaker.
