Not the first time I’ve tasted Toppers Mountain wines on the channel, but the first time I’ve tasted some of their red wines. Toppers Mountain – located in the northern New South Wales region of New England – are known for their use of alternative varieties. They do however produce some more prominent international varieties, so here I can compare their approach to two grapes!
