“Topper’s Mountain” is near Tingha in northern NSW on the western edge of the New England Tablelands (part of the Great Dividing Range). The vineyard is 10ha situated at an altitude of 900m on beautiful free draining deep, aged red basalt soils called Krasnozems, a degradedvolcanic soil high with iron content. Specialising in Alternate Varieties, we have larger blocks of Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Gewurztraminer, Petit Manseng, Tannat, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay & Shiraz.
We also have boutique areas of about 0.3ha of Pinot Noir plus smaller areas of five other varieties Pinotage, Viognier, Touriga Nacionale, Tinta Cao and Barbera. The high altitude, cool climate and specific soil conditions produce grapes of super premium quality.
Topper’s Mountain is named after brothers Edward & William Topper who were employees of George Jnr & Alwyn Wyndham (sons of George Wyndham & founderof Wyndham Estate) in the 1870s. At this time George Jnr & Alwyn were the owners of “New Valley Station” which included the present day “Topper’s Mountain”.
