Stanton Killeen Classic Muscat 12 Years 500ml
Rutherglen
Available in cartons of six
The Stanton & Killeen parcels are just three kilometres due west of Rutherglen, on picturesque, gently undulating pastorals. Thirty hectares of the best well drained soils are planted to vine, a mix of gravel ridges and red loam slopes, under which lie auspicious porous clays. It is on these latter soils that the Classic Muscat is grown. Sunning the oaken barrels which hold various vintages, rotation of the stocks through a complicated Solera system, slowly develops the melt in your mouth richness, an artisanal recipe handed down through six generations of Stanton Killeen.

Deep tawny scarlet. Overwhelming bouquet, rancion and nuts, jaffas and parched fruit. The palate is luscious and immediate, a rush of butter, gumnuts and honeyed citrus, fruit bread and green tea. An ebbing and flowing counterpoint between semi-dried out grapes and musty varietal sweetness, unctuous with coffee, strong cheese, fruitcakes and walnut.

Colour is a taffetta brown gold with deep brick reddish cloaks. The bouquet is world class, absolutely wonderfully giving out hints of almond, citrus, heavy on the walnuts and bitter fruit. Marmalade and tobacco on the tongue and a clear palate that is uncloying and void of unwanted sugars or excessive complexity. There are highlights of misty drawing room odours, leather, anise and sweet pickles with nuances of cigar smoke and tannin. A delicious honey flavoured Muscat with nuts, citrus and the capacity to lie in waiting.
Stanton Killeen Rutherglen Ruby Port 500ml
Rutherglen
Available in cartons of six
A blend of varying vintages of predominantly Shiraz and Touriga Nacional wines with a smaller component of Cabernet, treated and fermented separately to the point where an addition of fine brandies arrests the innoculation, preserving natural fruit sugars, textures and varietal complexities. The wines are then held in a combination of seasoned large and small oak barrels before assembling into a ruby style of port. An immensely satisfying Rutherglen wine, with some slight barrel aged characters showing through on the bouquet and palate.

Bright red, fawning robes. Silky smooth aromas of cherry and plum, liquorice and anise biscuit, walnut and hazelnut, tobacco leaf, seaweed and rancio. Excellent entry onto the palate where some bright varietal fruit opens up, cassis and ruby berries, red and black currants, eucalypt and chocolatey mint, raisin and hazelnutty shortcrust, some exciting bitter characters of unsweetened marmalade and citrus peel. It closes to lingering impressions of cherries and dried apricot, stilton and pipesmoke.

A viscous, deeply coloured wine. Lifted brandy spirit and dark cherry fruit dominate, blackberries and a wonderful spirit integration. More berries on the palate together with plums, spice and white pepper are rounded out with gentle chalky tannins. Spiced blackberry and black cherry flavours combine to round out the wonderfully soft finish. As always balance is the key, an harmonious combination of fruit, tannin and acid.
