Shiraz and Grenache are erstwhile mates which are often paired for fashioning into a well structured, Rhone styled red. Gapsted retain some of the finest Dolcetto vineyards in Australia, the name of the grape is Italian for sweet, it makes a delicious match with Shiraz and Grenache, textural, seamless and soft, with a titillating sprinkle of spice. An amazing refresher when served slightly chilled, revitalizing as aperitif, the red wine of choice to accompany pork fennel sausages and applesauce, mozzarella lasagne or mushroom gruyere pie.
The cool, high country environmentals of Gapsted vineyards permit grapes to develop ripe natural sugars, rich esters and an intensity of lifted flavours, while retaining crisp, refreshing acidity. The undulating, elevated aspects, cool Alpine breezes and ample snow runoffs in the Spring, all play a role in defining the Bushranger's solid structure, balance and poise. Softer morning sunlight stimulates intense fruit characters in the grapes. By shielding vines from afternoon sun through the use of canopy management systems, the protection of delicate flavours is assured. Intensive vineyard management combined with cool nights stimulate vines to yield harvests of flavourful, fully ripened fruit.
TASTING NOTES
Intense dark garnet colour. Wild raspberry bouquet, blueberries, violets and plum. A wonderfully balanced palate exhibiting exceptional fresh fruit richness and generosity of flavour, Dolcetto brambles, strawberry Grenache and Shiraz plum, an exceptionally smooth finish complemented by a length of fine, velvet tannins.

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»
