The fruit was harvested at night and gently air bag pressed with only free run juice retained. Once settled and racked the juice was slowly cold fermented to preserve fruit and fermentation characters. Just prior to dryness the ferment was chilled and stopped to retain a small amount of natural sweetness and freshness.

Our Petit Manseng was grown in the cool climate region of the upper King Valley in Whitfield by John Cavedon who is a director of the Victorian Alps Winery. These Petit Manseng grapes are typical of the exceptional quality of fruit from John's vineyard that becomes multi award winning wines.

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale Green


The bouquet is quite floral and shows in the slightly spicy finish.


The full ripe flavours of Petit Manseng are spicy lime and honeysuckle with a rich luscious peach character. The wines semi sweet palate has a complexity derived from the spice and zesty lime acidity.

Fragrant spicy dishes such as Laksa or a Thai curry, however this wine sits quite comfortably with bitey spicy cheese such as Primadonna or Aged Cheddar.

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.
