Classic festive celebration wines

Friday, December 02, 2011

Campbells’ wonderfully rich, complex wines are cherished during the cooler months, yet they undoubtedly shine when the sun is out. Campbells Moscato, Sparkling Shiraz and Classic Rutherglen Muscat make the perfect wine bracket for Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or any summer gathering.

The newest wine in the Campbells’ stable, the delicate yet vivacious Moscato is the perfect accompaniment to a lazy brunch, a cooling summer salve or start to seasonal festivities; bright with summer berry and musk notes; it reflects the true versatility of Rutherglen muscat grapes.

Sparkling Shiraz is a quintessentially Australian wine style, artfully expressed in Campbells’ estate-grown classic. Chilled down, this Sparkling Shiraz transforms into a refreshing yet complex aperitif. Festive flutes will flow with this wine throughout the celebratory season.

Rutherglen Muscat is the traditional match to plum pudding, mince pies and a fitting conclusion to a filling feast. Icy cold straight from the fridge (or freezer), over ice-cream or as a cocktail (with soda, crushed ice and fresh mint) Rutherglen Muscat is the perfect, cool refreshment for balmy evenings.

2011 Moscato

Perhaps the most cheerful wine style of all! Moscato’s freshness and low alcohol mean it can be enjoyed through the day, from brunch to dessert, or on its own. It displays typically-flamboyant muscat grape characters; a riot of citrus blossom, sweet summer berries, musk, rosewater and crushed grapes, balanced by natural spritz and cleansing acidity.

NV Sparkling Shiraz

Following the stand-out ‘1870’ celebrating 140 years of family winemaking, Campbells have continued to sparkle with this exceptional NV Sparkling Shiraz. Earthy, yeasty, with hints of licorice and mocha; it has subtle, integrated tannins and a dry, savoury finish. Sensational alongside the Christmas fare, it’s a must for New Year’s Eve revellers who’d love to ring in 2012 with a celebratory and complex sparkling red.

NV Classic Rutherglen Muscat

The Classic classification is a matured style; wonderfully unctuous at room temperature, it transforms into a viscous, cooling delight when chilled. Rich, ripe raisin aromas follow on the complex palate; powerful, intense fruit characters are balanced by mellow oak on the lingering finish.
