RUTHERGLEN | Stanton & Killeen Wines make some of the best fortified wines in Rutherglen. We’ve used their wines in the past not just to drink, but when making pate and have always been impressed. As you can imagine we were quite excited to pay them a visit when we were in Rutherglen.

Stanton & Killeen was established in 1864 by Timothy Stanton and his son John Lewis Stanton (as Stanton Wines) and made a name for themselves amongst the region’s gold miners as quality producers of fortified wines. Today, their reputation extends beyond Australia’s shores as the still family owned winery produces wines from 14 grape varietals. The shiraz vines are over 90 years old, and there are a range of interesting varietals not usually seen in Australia including and Portuguese varieties tinto cão, tinta roriz, touriga nacional, alvarinho, arinto, antoã vaz, souzão and touriga franca. Of course, durif and muscat are also on hand.

The result of all of this, is some outstanding fortified wines, as well as some very good red and white table wines. All of the topaqes and muscats are great, and each has a different character to it. Our advice? Try them all, but if you really can only have one, then go for the Classic Rutherglen Topaque.

Stanton & Killeen also sell their fortified wines in bulk. We came away with 5 litres of the Rutherglen topaqe to age in a small oak barrel at home. If you want to check out our pate recipe, you can find it here. Also remember to say hi to Strife, the winery’s cat.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
