Gapsted’s Hidden Story Pinot Grigio 2018
The viticultural characteristics of the King Valley and Alpine Valleys are cool climate, alpine breezes, high rainfall, snow run-off in the spring, cold nights, morning fogs (mountain mists), crystal clear skies and abundant freshwater.
The altitude provides cool nights, even when the days are warm, which is critical in premium grape production. Cool mountain air flows up and down the valleys.
The water is the clearest, cleanest and coldest in Australia. Much of the water comes from melting snow in the spring, supplying pure water for drip irrigation of the vineyards perched on the rocky slopes of the fertile valleys.
Gapsted Wines has a talented team of winemakers and wine industry professionals who are dedicated to excellence.
This wine is pale straw in colour. The nose displays the fresh aromas of juicy pear and green apple. These aromas lead to a crisp, savoury palate, kept in balance by lovely acidity. Made in the classic Italian style, this wine is best consumed young to fully enjoy its vibrant fruit characters.
