Summer Quinta Quarterly

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

For the second year in a row, we’ve been shortlisted for the Australian Wine Producer of the Year Trophy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. To be recognised for consistent quality is a great way to finish 2016, and a what a year it’s been. The weather has been superb and if it stays relatively dry and mild, the 2017 vintage will be another standout (my fingers are crossed as I’ve put my hand up again to be the cellar hand). Continue reading...

The Return of Jack's Block?

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Wine lovers young and old have been pleading with us to know when the next Jack’s Block Shiraz will be released. If we had a dollar for every time someone asked us this, well…we wouldn’t need to be winemakers to say the least. Not since 2008 have we bottled this iconic drop, made using fruit from fourth generation Jack Stanton’s vineyard planted in 1921.  Continue reading...

Great Wines Are Made in the Vineyard

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

There's no better winemaking adage than "great wines are made in the vineyard". You can do the fanciest science with the ferments and buy the best oak, but unless the fruit is in top condition once it hits the winery during vintage, it's like trying to use cheap plastic wrap...it just doesn't work. Our vineyards have been a top priority over the last few years and when Ruston Prescott joined Stanton & Killeen as our Viticulturist in December 2013, he and his team had their work cut out for them.  Continue reading...
