Two New Distinctive Red Wines You'll Want To Enjoy Now

Gapsted Wines has released two new red wines, each with their own distinctive textures and aromas, with plenty of appeal to a broad array of tastes and food pairings.

Our Limited Release 2017 Heathcote Sangiovese is a medium bodied red crafted from grapes grown in one of Australia's premier wine regions.

Consistent with our Limited Release brand, the grapes for this delicious wine were sourced from a select parcel of land in Victoria's Heathcote region - an area that's renowned for its high quality reds.

Perfect with hard cheeses or a rich spaghetti bolognaise, this wine displays a deep crimson colour while the nose shows aromas of fragrant cherry, dried currant and savoury tobacco. These aromas lead to a medium-bodied palate with wild cherry and earthy notes, finishing with youthful acid and fine, long tannins.

It's a wine you can enjoy now, or safely cellar for around five years.

The latest addition to our High Country range of wines is a 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which was created from select King Valley-grown grapes. Typical of Cabernet grapes grown at higher elevations, this wine delivers a full mouthfeel and soft, long finish.

This wine shows aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and hints of liquorice. These aromas lead to a palate that is impressively balanced, with spicy cinnamon, cedary notes and textured, grainy tannins.

This wine pairs well with blue vein cheese or, for the more adventurous, a dark ale kangaroo pie.

This wine is ready to drink now, or you can cellar it for up to six years. 

Both of these red wines, which are available to purchase now, showcase the best of what regional Victoria - and Gapsted Wines - can offer.
