The Gapsted High Country Prosecco 2023 boasts a lively foam and features a delicate effervescence of minuscule bubbles. The glass releases a delightful bouquet of lily and elderflower scents, accompanied by aromas of freshly baked bread, pear, apple, and refreshing lemon sherbet. On the palate, enjoy a decadent blend of red and green apples, pears, and juicy melon, with hints of citrus and bread adding depth and complexity. This expertly crafted Prosecco delivers a harmonious and crisp finish, with a remarkable depth of flavour and impressive length.

Winery & Vintage Info

Rich in history and personality, the 'High Country' wines are an expression of the true potential of the cool climate Alpine Valleys wine region, embracing its unique terroir, whilst capturing the individual character of each variety. The wines are thoughtfully crafted, harmonious, age-worthy and a pure expression of the Victorian High Country.

The fruit for the 2023 Prosecco was picked in early March at 10.3¬į Baum√©. The grapes were picked in the early morning, and quickly pressed off skins into tank for fermentation with some solids to provide complexity and richness. The wine was left on yeast lees with weekly stirring to protect the freshness in the wine and add complexity. Our vintage Prosecco is not only made with the best possible grapes, but it is our expression of a certain time and place. It‚Äôs unique to that year and region and that makes it very special. The 2023 base wine was Charmat fermented slowly at 12¬įC with the natural CO¬≤ being retained in the wine. Before bottling, the wine received a small addition of expedition liqueur to provide the final balance and structure.

The 2023 vintage will go down as not only one of the latest on record, but also one of the most challenging in recent memory. A third La Ni√Īa event in a row made for a much cooler and wetter spring followed by a cool summer and autumn with small rain events that certainly kept us on our toes. Whilst the weather made for some stressful and very busy periods, we were able to harvest everything at optimum ripeness and clean of disease. The below average crop levels coupled with a long slow ripening have produced wines that have intense aromatics, ripe flavours and all the hallmarks of age-worthiness. An excellent vintage.
