Stanton & Killeen

Rutherglen, VIC

-

Stanton & Killeen like to say they’re 141 years young. The richness of their history and the vision for their future inspires the S&K team to create wines that tell a different side of the Rutherglen story. S&K is internationally recognised for luscious fortifieds and rich reds, with winemaking knowledge passed down over seven generations. Wendy and Natasha Killeen are committed to producing world-class wines through a renewed focus and an energetic team.

Viticulturist Ruston Prescott carefully nurtures over 16 varieties with practices focusing on vineyard ecology and soil health. Outstanding fruit is produced from 90 year-old shiraz vines and established durif, muscat and Portuguese varieties tinto cão, tinta roriz and touriga nacional. More recently planted to suit Rutherglen’s climate and soils are the rare and unusual varieties of alvarinho, arinto, antoã vaz, souzão and touriga franca.

Winemaker Andrew Drumm continues to develop the modified solera system, many decades old, which produces some of Rutherglen’s most famous muscats, topaques and tawnys. These sit alongside exciting new table wines including The Prince Reserva and, in exceptional vintages, individual expressions of the Portuguese varieties such as Tempranillo and Touriga Nacional. The sought-after Jack’s Block Shiraz is made when nature permits and the traditional Rutherglen reds, Shiraz and Durif, display a generous palate. S&K may have a long history from one of Australia’s oldest winemaking regions, but they continue to look to the future by combining the best features of ‘old’ and ‘new’.
