Stanton & Killeen Grand Rutherglen Topaques

This year has been another year of success for Stanton & Killeen but this one has bought a trophy of international renown to our shores. Their Classic Rutherglen Muscat picked up the Trophy for Best Fortified Muscat at the International Wine Challenge in London. But here in Australia, the name Stanton & Killeen brings a smile to any sweetie lovers face, long has been their reputation for bringing sweet pleasure. The Grand Rutherglen Topaque is one of the ‘grandfathers’ of their range, however don’t despair there is a Topaque for all budgets in the Stanton & Killeen portfolio.

The Grand Topaque is as sweetly luscious as you could like.  The classic toffee’d characters of fruit cake with nuts, raisins & warm cinnamon provide a bounty for enjoying as a complement to a gooey chocolatey dessert & then move to the lounge for some quiet contemplation. Lip lickingly gorgeous as you would expect at this price – but seriously…. I could skip dessert & just enjoy this!

Date: 30th August 2011   Price: $80  Value: $$  Drink: Now (who can resist!)
