After the First World War, fourth generation Jack Stanton (1895-1989) with the help of his father started building a new winery at the current site of the winery and cellar door.Jack only made fortified wine up until the 1960s when he and his son-in-law Norman Killeen started making red wine to meet changing Australian tastes.
Today, the winery has an average annual crush of 180-200 tonnes with around 70% of production focused on fortifieds and the remaining for red and white wine. Not only do we honour the legacy of the generations before us by nurturing the many precious parcels of fortifieds, Stanton and Killeen are also committed to implementing the best, modern technologies and practices to ensure that S&K wine represents quality, consistency and generations of flavour.
Awarded the Trophy for Best Rutherglen Topaque at the London International Wine Challenge, this wine expresses our skill and commitment to making premium quality fortified wine. Light amber glass in colour with a stunning bouquet of malt, caramel, butterscotch and almonds. The palate has layers of caramelized butter, honeysuckle and dried apricots with a long finish of cold tea and marmalade.
