Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Sorrenberg Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Sorrenberg Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

Victoria, AustraliaThis is serious wine, and should be considered as one of Australia's top whites. From his biodynamically farmed 2.4ha vineyard outside of Beechworth, owner/vigneron Barry Morey blends 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillion, with partial skin contact before a native barrel ferment and extended ageing on lees. This has a lovely gentle generosity on the mid palate, while running a svelte figure through a very lengthy, mineral salt finish. The flint-slicked structure is filled with downy lees, cracked flax, meadow grass, wild green herbs, etched and brightened with crystalline lemon. Structural enough to carry this a decade+ but alluring enough to down this serious bottle now.
