Rutherglen Muscat (375ml)

Tasting Notes
Bright amber gold with copper tints. Fresh raisin fruit backed by subtle oak characters. Luscious mouthfilling raisined fruit combine with the oak flavours to produce a wine of great length.
Winemaking
Each season grapes are picked after prolonged ripening to ensure maximum sugar levels and raisin character. The resultant wine is blended into our soleras to maintain a consistent house style when combined with wines from previous vintages. This wine contains portions from a number of vintages over several years.
Cellaring
Blended for optimum flavour and balance at the time of bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening. Excellent chilled as an aperitif or with strong cheeses, plum pudding or after dinner with freshly brewed coffee.
This classification is the foundation of the style; displaying the fresh raisin aromas, rich fruit, clean spirit and great length of flavour on the palate, which are the mark of all the Muscats of Rutherglen. The Muscats of Rutherglen are considered the "World's Richest Wines" and bear a mark of authenticity – an oval logotype with a stylised "R" – which is only applied to the wines drawn from the great Muscat vineyards of the region.

“ The "Muscat of Rutherglen" trademark assures the highest quality of wine exclusively sourced from the Rutherglen Wine Region. Campbells 'house style' is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of raisin fruit flavours.” Colin Campbell
