DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep amber with tawny hues. Rich fresh raisin fruit aromas with great depth and showing some dry ‘aged oak’ characters.

Wine Making

The grapes are left until 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 added to the Classic Rutherglen Muscat solera. The wine that provides the basis of this solera dates back to the 1960’s. Wine can only be withdrawn from this solera when it matches exactly with the previous withdrawal thus ensuring the quality and consistency of style.

Cellaring

Blended through our solera for optimum flavour and balance, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening. Excellent with vintage cheddar or blue vein cheeses, dried fruit and fresh nuts or as a memorable end to a meal with freshly brewed coffee.

Technical

The Grapes: Muscat a petit grains rouge (locally known as Rutherglen Brown Muscat) from Campbells Rutherglen vineyards.
Alcohol: 17.5%

Palate:

Great power and intense fruit with balance and elegance. There is evidence of mellow oak with the luscious lingering finish.

"Quintessential classic in style, with a beautiful line of pure rose oil and dried-fruit aromatics on display throughout. The floral delicacy is a big part of Campbells' understated but concentrated muscat style. Builds layer after layer of flavour, yet remains fresh and vital. This is the blender's art in a glass. 500ml." - Jeni Port - 95 points
