Description

Stanton and Killeen Grand Rutherglen Topaque has an average age of 15 to 20 years. Stanton and Killeen Classic Rutherglen Topaque has an average age of 12 years old. Stanton and Killeen is a family-owned wine company located in the Rutherglen wine growing region of Australia. They are famous for their red wines and Port-style wines but are arguably most famous for the superb dessert wines they produce from Muscat and Topaque. Topaque is the new-ish name for the Muscadelle, which was previously known locally as Tokay! Now in their seventh generation, the company can trace its origins back to 1855 when Timothy Stanton arrived in Australia from England in search of gold. Stanton and Killeen are part of the Rutherglen Network, a group of 8 Rutherglen winemakers (along with All Saints, Bullers, Campbells, Chambers, Morris, Pfeiffer and Rutherglen Estates) who market and manage the promotion of (and ensure quality is maintained) the famous fortified wines of the region. Stanton and Killeen have around 86 acres of vineyards the oldest of which were planted in 1921. The Muscadelle grapes for the Stanton and Killeen Grand Rutherglen Topaque are crushed and fermented on the skins for only one day. Fermentation is then stopped using high, strength, neutral grape spirit after which it is clarified and aged a modified solera system with only small amounts of wine ‘drawn off’ per year for 2 to 3 years. Finally the parcels are blended and then returned to smaller oak ageing for further ageing, in this case between 15 and 20 years.
