The Gapsted team live and work in the heart of the King and Alpine Valleys of Victoria’s high country. The vibrant Alpine fruit characters of Traminer are a result of cool breezes and snow run off in spring, which provides abundant clear, fresh water to the Whitlands vineyard. The cool ripening conditions prevent high levels of transpiration, allowing the Traminer to retain natural acids, sugars and lifted fruit flavours. A very slow, and cold controlled ferment at seven degrees for five weeks, ensured retains fresh crisp varietal characters. Fermentation is stopped at six degrees of baume by chilling the wine and fining. Some naturally occurring CO2 is retained in the wine for a light frizzante style. Alcohol 6.5%

The mature Lily Farm vines yield Frontignac grapes with heightened flavour profiles and varietal character. Grapes are hand picked at healthy baumes, just short of their ripening potential, capturing a good measure of natural acidity to balance the sweetness of fruit. Following the crush, only the free run juices are retained to ensure a wine of maximum freshness and delicacy. Juices are cold settled and chilled over forty eight hours prior to racking and inoculation. Fermentations are stopped and yeast lees removed when the wine has reached the desired level of sweetness. This achieves a long crisp finish, which Grant Burge believes is the most important feature of the style.

Frontignac grapes are harvested at a minimum 14° baume of sugar ripeness, crushed into open fermenters and partially fermented on skins for a week and more to extract maximum colour and flavour.

This allows the wine to slowly develop complexity without obvious oak flavours and characters. The final blend is cold stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
