$20.00 CELLAR CLUB

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Bright amber gold with copper tints. Fresh raisin fruit backed by subtle oak characters.

Wine Making

The grapes are left until late in the season to achieve optimum ripeness, ensuring maximum fruit flavor and a high degree of natural sweetness. Selected parcels of the finished wine are then added to the Rutherglen Muscat solera which is a blend of a number of vintages from many past years. Wine can only be withdrawn from this solera when it matches exactly with the previous withdrawal thus ensuring the quality and consistency of style.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 chilled as an aperitif or with strong cheeses, plum pudding or after dinner 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:

"The first tier in the Rutherglen classification offers an amber-orange tinged wine with heady aromas of orange marmalade bubbling on the stove, raisins in brandy, toffee and tea. It's fresh, lively and ready to please. So pour a glass. Or two." - 94 points
