About

This is a wine very close to Simon Killeen's heart, and you can see the fire in his eyes when he talks about it. To give some context, I'll quote Campbell Mattinson, "Simon’s late father, Chris Killeen, was renowned as an experimenter, a champion of Portuguese varieties in Australia, and as the producer of Australia’s best and most interesting Vintage Port. He died far too young." The torch has been taken up by Simon. His VP is a bit of a game changer. Made in a traditional method from six different varieties; Shiraz, Tempranillo, Alicante Bouschet, Tinta Barocca, Touriga Nacional and Durif, this is intentionally a drier and more refreshing style of fortified. This will cellar beautifully but is as good as anything we've tried as a young wine of this style. Simon wants this wine to challenge the big boys of Australian fortified wines, and you know what, he's on to something.

What it Tastes Like

"You could tuck into this, easy as you like. The alcohol is warming and clear but it works in neatly, in the context of the style. Bitumen, dried herbs, red berries, both a sweetness and a sourness. Dark chocolate, melted, oozing, low in sweetness and high in cocoa. It’s ever so delicious, despite its seriousness." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
