Tasting Notes

When we found that our friends from Granite Belt based La Petite Mort winery purchased 12 of these kvevris (from Georgia of course) we didn't hesitate a minute and asked them to 'borrow' us one of them to make wine from our grapes. We decided for Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cao and Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo) ‚– blending these varieties is a centuries-old tradition in the most famous Portugal wine region ‚– the Douro Valley. Grapes were destemmed and put into kvevri to ferment and age for 150 days! The result? Unbelievably juicy wine boasting of all kinds of black fruits, dried herbs and spice. It has very precise and soft tannin structure although it didn't spent a single minute in oak barrel and that's what clay vessels are all about ‚– creating great fruit aromas and flavours yet providing perfectly shaped tannic backbone. - Winery Note

Topper's Mountain is named after brothers Edward and William Topper, employees of George Jnr. and Alwyn Wyndham (sons of George Wyndham, founder of Wyndham Estate). George Jnr. and Alwyn owned New Valley Station, which included the present day Topper's Mountain. Mark Kirkby established the current vineyard between 1998 and 2002, with his wife, Stephanie and three daughters. - Winery Note
