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...

Fortifieds Demystified

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The world of fortifieds can sometimes be a little confusing. What is a port and what is a liqueur? How long should you leave open a muscat or a port before it doesn’t taste the best? How do you pronounce Topaque and what is it?

Jack's Back

Friday, May 26, 2017

When Jack Stanton planted a block of Shiraz in 1921, it was only a few years after he had returned from war and Australia was greeting the new decade with cautious optimism. With the help of his father - third generation winemaker John Richard Stanton -Jack established his own winery not far from the original Stanton property. Almost 100 years later, and after much patience and care in rejuvenating this very old vineyard, we have released one of our most special wines, the 2016 Jack’s Block Shiraz. Continue reading...
