Sorrenberg Gamay 2012


Sorrenberg from Beechworth in northern Victoria fashion a good gamay, in my humble opinion.  A medium intensity ruby colour in the glass, it has light aromatics of plum skins, earth, dried herbs, blackberry and a little cedar seasoning.  The palate has fine grained soft tannins, medium body and flavours reminding of earth and plum skins.  The finish is towards medium length, and there's a touch of bitterness.  This is an interesting and good gamey from Sorrenberg, that will reward drinking now.  Good
