Gapsted have taken the opportunity to acquire superior harvests, grown to the upper and middle reaches of Valley King, constructing a Cabernet Sauvignon of wonderful warmth, integrity and charm. A component of exquisite Barossa fruit contributes comforting chocolatey richness, a precious parcel from a choice site in Heathcote adds palate weight and splendid savouryness. A whole that's greater than the sum of parts, suede textural mouthfeel, generosity of fruit and sound structure, finishing in precisely the right direction.
Gapsted are owner operated by winemakers and growers who were raised on neighbouring farms. They know King Valley well and settled down with loved ones to plant vines. Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested at night from fine vineyards in Heathcote and Barossa Valley, to be assembled alongside a backbone of cool ripened fruit from the higher aspects of Valley King. Grapes are cold sealed prior to a warm ferment. Batches are pressed off skins after a term of maceration and racked to barrel for completion of malolactic. Components are treated to an extravagant two years maturation in a selection small French and American oak barriques, followed by a light fining for bottling. Alcohol 14.3%
TASTING NOTES
Deep black red colour. Dark, ripe, brambleberry and forest floor aromas with hints of spicy cinnamon and earthy beetroot. A rich full flavoured palate brimming with cassis and blackcurrant fruit leading to a lucsious velvety mocha finish. Gapsted fills the whole mouth with fruit weight and finishes on well rounded tannins. Serve Gapsted with rosemary thyme lamb and roast vegetable.

About Gapsted Wines
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»
