spring quinta quarterly

Thursday, September 06, 2018

Winter Quinta Quarterly

Sunday, May 27, 2018

Did you know that by 2020, the word tokay will disappear from Australian wine labels, websites and all marketing material? We won’t even be able to write that Topaque was “previously known as Tokay”.

Autumn Quinta Quarterly

Monday, March 19, 2018

There’s no instant gratification in the wine industry. If you want to make a new wine, you need to plan it, price it, prepare it, plant it, produce it, package it, promote it...the list goes on. Unless you can bypass the vine planting and buy fruit that is ready to harvest, this process can take many years. My father, Chris Killeen, planted several Portuguese varieties in the 1990s to further develop his passion for producing vintage ports. Since his passing, S&K has been using these fantastic varieties for red table wines as well as fortified production.  Continue reading...

Summer Quinta Quarterly

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

For many, the summer holidays are a time of slowing down and recharging, but for us, it’s when we start the hustle and haul of making wine. The vineyard team are in full swing and won’t slow down until April or May when the last of the grapes are harvested. The winemaking team - still working on our 2017 wines - are also prepping the barrels, tanks and equipment in time for vintage, which usually starts around Australia Day for us when we pick the Chardonnay, and a short time later, Muscat (for Moscato and Sparkling). Continue reading...
