The Prince Returns!

Monday, June 23, 2014

In 2008 and 2009, we produced a savoury, Portuguese-inspired style of red table wine in honour of sixth generation Chris Killeen (08.07.54-19.06.07), affectionately known as "The Prince of Port". Using four different varieties usually reserved for our Vintage Fortifieds, the 2008 was a blend of 30% Souzão, 26% Tinta Roriz, 22% Tinto Cao and 22% Touriga Nacional. Recent tastings have proven these Iberian varieties varieties have staying power and meld superbly to create a mouth-filling food wine.  Continue reading...

In March, Georg Riedel from the world renowned premium glass manufacturer, Riedel Wine Glass Company, visited Rutherglen on the quest to find the perfect glass for one of Australia’s iconic wine styles- muscat. Having tasted some of what this region has to offer in 14 different glasses, the search was narrowed to three. There are six different Rutherglen wineries participating in the search.  By visiting the cellar doors of All Saints, Campbells, Morris, Pfeiffer, Rutherglen Estates and Stanton and Killeen, you can taste our muscats from the three glasses and choose for yourself which offers the best tasting experience in regards to aromatics, flavour and perception. Continue reading...
