Gapsted are real wines made by real people, a partnership between dedicated viticulturalists and a distinguished winemaking team. The propitious compact means that everything by Gapsted carries the signature and personality of the people involved, the charm of small vineyards and influence of choice microclimes. The labour of love and passion by mates who share a desire to create appealing and personable wines, Tobacco Road is a compelling example of high country Merlot, endowed by ripe red fruit flavours and supported by well structured tannins.
Careful and meticulous winemaking practices and specialized viticulture are employed to ensure the highest quality cool climate wine. Central to the process is the method of canopy vine management which allows gentle morning sunlight and soft mountain breezes to delicately ripen fruit, producing vibrant colours and intense fruit flavours. Fruit is vinified in small batches through inoculation to choice Bordeaux yeasts and transferred to French oak for the completion of malolactic ferments. The best wines from individual barrels are selected according to intensity of colour, good varietal fruit definition and ripe, supple tannins. Components are racked and assembled into the finished wine.
TASTING NOTES
Bright cherry colour with hues of garnet red. Plummy fruitcake nose, juicy cherry and licorice aromas underpinned with five spice and marzipan. Soft plummy ripe red fruit flavours to the palate, richly underpinned by sweet fruit and velvety soft tannins. The finish is weighty, warm and persistent. Enjoy with lasagna or stuffed oven baked eggplant.

About Gapsted Winery
Pass over the Buckland Gap, turn left at Tobacco Road, and cross over Snowy Creek to arrive at Gapsted's Victorian Alps Winery
Gapsted Wines is the premium brand from the Victorian Alps Winery. Small parcels of fruit are hand selected and crafted into these meticulous wines of distinction. The range focuses on single varietals and innovative wines, including the Gapsted Ballerina Canopy series, Gapsted Limited Release and Gapsted Valley Selection. The Victorian Alps winery was established in 1997 by six great friends who were also wine professionals. Their extensive experience in the industry and their passion for the region were central to the success of the winery over its relatively short existence. In 1999 the first wines were released under the Gapsted brand and in 2001 the stunning and award winning Cellar Door was opened. Gapsted»
