Liquid Gold! Best in Show at Decanter Wine Awards

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Stanton and Killeen are very excited to announce that our Grand Topaque has won the Decanter World Wine Awards Regional Trophy: Australian Fortified over £15. 

With over 15,000 wines entered into this prestigious competition, it is a great honour to be considered as a producer of some of the best fortifieds in the world. Regional Trophies are chosen from gold medal winners in a particular region, and then compete for International Trophies in specific categories defined by wine style. 

"An amazing wine of great quality and intensity. Huge nose of dried fig, dark brown sugar, lychee and mocha. Multi-layered palate of marzipan and toffee wears its sugar well and is complemented by fresh acidity. Very long and full of character, this is an intriguing wine which continues to give and give." Judges comments.

Congratulations to our fellow Rutherglen producers, Morris, Campbells and All Saints Estate who picked up gold and silver medals for their fortifieds as well. It is wonderful to see that Rutherglen is continually recognised as the premier region for fortified production not only in Australia, but also the world. 

Another great excuse to crack open a bottle of S&K Grand Topaque...
