Description

Stanton & Killeen has 145 years of history in family winemaking.  Their  journey began in the 1850s when the Stanton family travelled from England to the gold fields of Victoria Australia.  It wasn’t long before they turned their attention to the liquid gold that came from vines and the Stantons worked hard to establish a vineyard and winery that endured many setbacks such as phylloxera, drought and the Great Depression.  The two families came together when Norman Killeen married Jack Stanton’s daughter, Joan and in 1954 she gave birth to 6th generation winemaker Chris Killeen. In 1968 the business name was changed to ‘Stanton & Killeen Wines’ and thus started a new phase in the history of the winery.  Today the business is owned and managed by mother-daughter team Wendy and Natasha Killeen with a focus on Portuguese varieties, flavoursome Rutherglen red wine and continuing the long tradition of award-winning Muscats, Topaques, Tawnys and Vintage Fortifieds.

This Classic Topaque has been matured for an average of 12 years to produce a complex wine with bouquet of malt, caramel, butterscotch and almonds together with layers of caramelized butter, honeysuckle and dried apricots.

Not only the domain of desserts, this Topaque matches superbly with duck rillettes on brioche toast or Catalan fig tapas.
