Central to Gapsted's viticulture is the ballerina method of canopy vine management which allows gentle morning sunlight and soft mountain breezes to delicately ripen grapes. Harvests are separated into three parcels and handled separately. Flavours and texture are enhanced through extended plunging and pumpovers. The first component is vinified to retain concentration and intensity before being filled to new French oak at the end of primary ferments. The balance is transferred to a selection of new and prior use French and American oak barrels after completion of malolactic. Parcels are treated to an extended two year maturation before assembling into the finished wine. Alcohol 14.2%
An assemblage of King Valley fruit, some parcels acquire their individuality in the vineyard, while others develop their charm in the vinification and ageing. Previous vintages have claimed conspicuous accolades including a silver medal at the prestigious London International. Much of the fruit is sourced from eminent sites around Whitfield in King Valley, not far from the Gapsted wineworks. Growing conditions can be close to perfect in these higher altitudes and the team make it a priority to capture and preserve the exceptional quality of Shiraz.
Deep, deep cherry red/ purple colour. Spiced earth and chocolate nose, cloves, fruit cake and alpine pepper. Complex, full bodied, ripe and spicy plum palate, cloves and raspberry flavours are balanced by cool climate pepper. Vanillin oak characters over a firm, lengthy backbone of rich, almost viscous, tannin before a tight, lingering finish. To accompany scotch fillet with wattle pepper and red wine jus.
