Overview

Gapsted Ballerina Canopy is a range of single varietals highlighting the best of our region. These wines are multi award winning and of outstanding quality.

Using fruit from the upper and mid reaches of the King Valley has given a wonderful warmth in the mid palate without compromise. The fruit intensity and great colour comes from the higher elevation growing conditions. 2009 was cooler than the average, giving some attractive herbaceous and cassis notes to the Cabernet parcels, which matured and softened during barrel aging to give an exotic minty/plummy character which makes this wine ideal when paired with spring lamb or venison.

Palate

A rich full flavoured palate brimming with cassis and blackcurrant fruit lead to its lucsious velvety mocha finish. The wine fills the whole mouth with fruit weight and finishes with well rounded tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Victorian Alps winery was established in 1996 by six great friends who were also wine professionals. Their extensive experience in the industry and their passion for the region were central to the success of the winery over its relatively short existence. In 1999 the first wines were released under the Gapsted brand and in 2001 the stunning and award winning Cellar Door was opened.

The owners of Victorian Alps Winery are all passionate wine people with Shayne Cunningham and John Cavedon providing the drive for the business.

John grew up on neighbouring farms in the district. After his wild youth days of bush dances and courting girls, he settled down with loved ones, and planted vineyards. Shayne was a winemaker in the northern district of Australia, and would travel regularly to the North East Victorian region to sample grapes. He met John and they instantly became friends through their common love of the region, good food and fantastic wines. They had a dream to build their own winery and decided to become business partners. After many long nights of planning (and the occasional tipple), the dream of Victorian Alps Winery became a reality. Today the winery crushes 11,000 tons and has storage capacity of over 9 million litres.

The unique combination of having a winemaker and grower as owners, allows the company to have total control over the winemaking process from growing the fruit, right through to making and marketing the wine.
