Origin: New England
Region: New South Wales
Style: Full-bodied red wine aged in used oak
Nutty, red fruits, a little floral perfume. Medium-bodied, hazelnut, a bit of classic Tempranillo earthiness, gentle gummy tannin, some spice in with boysenberry and a lick of tannin and saline flavour on a solid finish. So smashable. Lovely wine. You can taste the New World style for sure, but the grape variety has an unmistakable accent here.
Topper’s Mountain is a very forward-thinking one in terms of experimenting with various grapes outside your classic Shiraz & Chardonnay. And it doesn’t stop at “experimenting”. These guys get some solid results from it. Located in New England, NSW, Topper’s Mountain works on high altitude of 900 metres. Soils are red volcanic aka Krasnozems (as represented on the label). Ten hectares, so much diversity – Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Tannat, Touriga Nacional and more.
