Highlights: Sorrenberg Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

This 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% Semillon, 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, and 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. Such a beaut. 93/100
