Top Note
South Australia

Just over the hill from McLaren Vale, on a beautiful road winding past Kuitpo Forest, lies Top Note, a premium cool climate Adelaide Hills vineyard.

Top Note Vineyard is a world apart from the vale, sitting at 330m elevation. Altitude and exposure to cool south-easterlies blowing up off the Southern Ocean keep us up to 10 degrees cooler than our neighbours in the vale, allowing us to grow cool climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and our rare Red Semillon as well as producing elegant Shiraz and beautifully structured Cabernet Sauvignon.

Top Note sells grapes under contract to wineries including Kangarilla Road and Sidewood. Small parcels of hand-selected fruit are picked to make wine under the Top Note label; see our Wines page for more information or our purchasing page to find out where to buy our wines.

Tastings are available at our cellar door.
