Gapsted Valley Selection is a collection of the most popular blends and varieties, these wines will impress the casual drinker through to the most ardent critic.

If you don't like oaked chardonnay then this wine is worth trying! It has just the slightest oak flavour but is balanced. It has a wonderfully aromatic intensity that is in no way oily or viscous. The style we have made is true to its predecessors' hallmark of being fresh and yet much more then a glass of fruit. With or without food, it's a delicious drink. Like all our whites, it is under screw cap.

Coming from the renowned Whitfield area in the King Valley, 80% of this wine was fermented in oak. To retain freshness and pure fruit flavours, we did not induce malolactic fermentation, we did however, add layers of complexity and texture through regular lees stirring while the wine was in the barrel. The 20% that did not go into barrel was kept cold and had no lees stirring. Combining these components achieved fresh varietal chardonnay character along with some yeasty autolysis and oak integration.

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.
