The Wine

The 2022 blend is composed of 30-40% Merlot and Cabernet Franc, complemented by a hint of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Carménère, with the balance being Cabernet Sauvignon. Maintaining a low crop level is crucial for the fruit to ripen fully and develop rich flavors. The wine underwent a four-week fermentation on the skins prior to pressing, with natural yeast employed throughout the process. It was then matured in oak for 24 months, followed by the final blending and bottling unfiltered.

“The aromas of the 2022 Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Merlot show dark plum intermingled with blackcurrants and elements of cigar box. This medley carries through to the palate with tight acidity, complex fine grain tannin and spicy oak. Providing extra length and dimension. Still a young wine, it will benefit with cellar time.”
Barry Morey, Winemaker

About the Wine Maker


Sorrenberg Vineyard was established in 1984 by Barry and Jan Morey and situated on the outskirts of Beechworth, conveniently near the golf course.

It’s a 3 hectare vineyard at an elevation of 560 meters set mainly on granite rock with a sandy loam. The finesse and elegance of Sorrenberg wines can be attributed to the fact that it is one of the highest vineyards on granite soil in the Beechworth region. The varieties grown included Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Gamay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Gris and Merlot.

The Moreys have quietly gone about their work over the years and are now considered one of the great small Australian wineries. Biodynamic practices have been employed since 2000, with Demeter certification achieved in 2008.

For the Moreys, the Vineyard and the surrounding environment are all important - all efforts are put into the production of organic and healthy grapes, so the winemaking process does not become the focus. Its the land and its bounty that are the principle aim. Hard to argue against that!

These wines are Australia classics that every wine lover should know about!
