A very special wine in honour of sixth-generation winemaker Christopher Killeen. He was called “The Prince of Port” in the wine industry for his skill and passion in making his own unique Australian style of Vintage Fortified. Each year, we take the best fruit from the Portuguese varieties he planted in the 1990s, co-ferment for optimum results and use the best French oak to create a savoury, elegant and age-worthy dry table wine. It's only released in the best years.

95 Points - Gold Medal Comprising 42% Tinta Roriz, 30% Touriga Nacional, 22% Tinta Cao and 6% Tinta Barroca for the new named Iberian blend, once known as the Reserva but still the tribute wine to Chris Killeen. While it has plenty of fragrance and flavour from red fruits, licorice, tar and a dusting of warm earth, it has composure - it's not too big. A pleasure to drink. - Jane Faulkner
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?
