Sorrenberg: A Gamay Grows in Beechworth

The morning wine writer and ukulele-meister Max Allen and I tanked up on flat whites and headed out of Melbourne, the bush fires kept the Victoria air smelling like barbeque. Our first visit was Bindi (conventional but snappy and sexy pinot and chardonnay). Then we hit the biodynamic and dry farming advocates, Jasper Hill and Castagna (“I make syrah not shiraz”).

Vines on Jasper Hill’s Heathcote’s cambrian iron-rich, volcanic basalt soils.
