WINE OF THE MONTH:
FEBRUARY – GAPSTED MERLOT 2009 &
GAPSTED CHARDONNAY 2010
Gapsted Wines rests in the heart of the Australian High Country, surrounded by Mt. Buffalo, Mt. Hotham, Falls Creek, Mt. Bogong and Mt. Buller. Each vintage our winemakers source premium grapes from the finest vineyards in the country to ensure our Valley selection wines deliver cool climate style and sophistication.
Gapsted Chardonnay 2010: Aromas of melon, peach and hints of passionfruit follow through to the palate capturing the timeless style and finesse of mountain grown Chardonnay. Elegant flavours of stonefruit complement rich, creamy layers of honey and cashew nut texture leading to toasty complexity imparted by French oak maturation. A well balanced wine delightful on its own or match with rich aged cheese.
Gapsted Merlot 2009: Our 2009 Merlot displays abundant sweet ripe currant and fruitcake aromas, underpinned with complex truffle characters and rich chocolate tasty oak. The silky smooth palate shows juicy, rich berry fruit supported by velvety fine grained tannins. Enjoy now or cellar for additional complexity.
