The earlier parts of summer in Victoria's highlands are cool and dry, contributing to the health of Gapsted's vines. Warm days develop ripe tropical fruit characters and the cool nights ensure crisp, grassy Sauvignon Blanc flavours. Conditions in the latter part of the growing season encourage ripeness, full development and fleshyness in the grapes. Sauvignon Blanc is harvested throughout the chill of night, grapes are gently air bag pressed and only the free run juices are retained. Racked to fermenters, crushed and settled to collect much of the flavour from skins, juices are inoculated with choice yeasts and treated to a slow, cool vinification aimed at preserving the vital fruit characters. Alcohol 11.2%
Pale straw with green hues. Fragrant nose of nectarine, lychees and lime. A refreshing, balanced palate of citrus and sweet, green tropical fruits, silky honeydew softness fills out the mid palate and adds lovely length. Full of intense cool climate Sauvignon Blanc fruit characters, an envigorating aperitif style and an excellent food wine to enjoy today alongside spring asparagus, shaved parmesan, a squeeze of lemon and virgin oil.
