1 - 7 of 7 Alpine And Ovens Valleys

Devils Creek Alpine Valley Merlot
Alpine
Available by the dozen
Devils Creek runs along the base of Mount Buffalo, providing a precious source of water to replenish vines which yield the most splendid harvests of Alpine Valley Merlot. The creek was famous for disappearing underground some years and welling up again in plentiful supply during others, leaving the exasperated locals to liken it to the devil himself. A vibrant cherry red wine exuding lifted ripe plum and chocolate notes. Fully flavoured with a hint of cool climate spice and fine oak integration. Who knows, a few glasses of Devils Creek may bring out the devil in you.

Established in 1982, the Michelini Vineyard is perched in the Buckland Valley between the snow capped peaks of Mt Buffalo and the pristine crystal clear waters of Devil's Creek. The Alpine winters and cool summers nights characteristic of this secluded valley provide ideal conditions for maturing premium grapes. Yield is regulated on the ten hectares Merlot blocks by removal of secondary shoots prior to flowering, and by removal of excessive bunches per shoot at veraison. Leaf removal in the fruiting zone is carried out to improve exposure to sunlight. Devil's Creek develops lovely charry vanilla characters and the gentlest of tannins from a spell of ageing in fine French oak barrels.
 
Medium cherry red colour. Lifted ripe plum and chocolate notes, elegant, savoury bouquets of dark chocolate and cherry, opening quickly to reveal intense fruit and cedary, cocoa oak. More floral bouquets, satsuma plums and mint leaf. On the palate are mouthfilling flavours of plum and raspberry liquorice, chocolate prunes, leather and violet, all beautifully defined. Enjoy with fiery Asian recipes incorporating sweet herbs and spice.
Gapsted Ballerina Canopy Shiraz
Alpine & King Valleys
Available by the dozen
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.

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%
 
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.
