Liquid Gold Classic Rutherglen Topaque (500ml)

Tasting Notes

Deep golden. Rich aromas of cold tealeaf, toffee, honey and citrus. Intense and mouthfilling. Malt and toffee combine with rancio characters providing a wine of power and complexity with a luscious yet clean finish.

Winemaking

Our topaque grapes are left late in the season to achieve optimum ripeness, ensuring maximum fruit flavour and a high degree of natural sweetness. Only selected parcels of premium fruit are used to produce wines for this solera. The wine that provides the basis of this blend dates back to the 1950’s. Only small amounts are withdrawn from this solera ensuring the highest quality and consistency of style.

Cellaring

Blended for optimum flavour and balance prior to bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening. Perfect with fresh fruit, sticky date pudding or freshly brewed coffee and fine chocolates.

This classification displays a greater level of richness and complexity, produced through the blending of selected parcels of wine, often matured in various sizes of oak cask to impart the distinctive dry ‘rancio’ characters produced from maturation in seasoned wood.

The Topaques of Rutherglen bear a mark of authenticity - an oval logotype with a stylised "R" - which is only applied to the wines drawn from the great vineyards of the region. The "Topaque of Rutherglen" trademark assures the highest quality of wine exclusively sourced from the Rutherglen Wine Region.

“Campbell’s ‘house style’ is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of fruit flavours.” Colin Campbell
