The Vincast Episode 139 – Ashley Huntington from Two Metre Tall Beer & Cider

Ashley Huntington is a man on a mission, with great courage of conviction and incredible persistence. Though he has a background as a winemaker and spent many years working in the Languedoc region of France in that field, after purchasing a property in the Derwent Valley perfect for viticulture, he ended up brewing beer. The reason he was so interested in this alternative path was the discovery that the region grew in excess of 80% of the nation’s hops, which can only be used for beer production. In spite of this fact there were no local breweries, and thus he embarked on a mission to take the same approach to beer as he had to wine; using well-grown local raw materials, fermenting naturally and not filtering. It has taken many years but he is now held in high esteem as the craft beer market continues to grow in Australia.

Let’s Taste – Toppers Mountain Tempranillo 2012 & Shiraz 2013

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!

Wines tasted;
Toppers Mountain Tempranillo 2012 – RRP $32.00
Toppers Mountain Tempranillo 2013 – RRP $30.00
