Gapsted High Country Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Gapsted has been in a slumber but it seems to have reawakened. Excellent to see.

You don’t see a lot of good cabernet (or shiraz) out of the King Valley, for whatever reason. Indeed a fair amount of it is horrid. This version is clean, well-fruited, fresh and highly drinkable. Tick, tick and tick. It’s a neat wine. Mid-weight, fleshed with fruit, tannic-enough, slightly dusty, and more-ish. There’s a lick of sweet coffee-like flavour and it works a treat in context. Nice one.
