I always appreciate a winery that supports what I do and continues to send me samples to open on camera. Topper’s Mountain Wines is one of these wineries; they have continued to send me bottles since I was the Fellow for the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show in 2016. Gewürztraminer is an important grape for Topper’s Mountain, as they make several different varietal wines with it. Here are two from the 2016 vintage, let me know what you think in the comments below.
Topper’s Mountain Gewürztraminer 2016 – LUC $35.00
Topper’s Mountain Barrel Ferment Gewürztraminer 2016 – LUC $35.00
Two sample bottles got delivered from Cape Jaffa Wines in South Australia. I opened them, I tasted them, I discussed them. Let me know what you think, do you agree?
Wanting to pick up a nice fresh white wine on a warm Sunday evening, I stopped in at my locol independant wine store, Rathdowne Cellars. I spotted the Thick as Thieves Sylvaner 2014 in the fridge, and was intrigues as I didn’t know the variety was in Australia. I had encountered it on my travels in Europe, particularly in Germany. After a chat with Jeffrey I brought it home and opened it up! Let me know what your thoughts are on this wine in the comments!
