Top Note Vineyard

Wineries

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 is the creation of an opera singer and a computer chip designer who decided to pursue a career change by buying a vineyard.

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

Owners Cate and Nick Foskett select the very best of each crop to make into small batches of exclusive, hand crafted wines under the Top Note label. The first Top Note release was a dessert wine made from the very rare Red Semillon.

Top Note also produce an estate grown, trophy winning Sparkling, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, and Chardonnay. Join our mailing list to access occasional events or purchase online.
