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 Wine can only be withdrawn from this solera when it matches exactly with the previous withdrawal thus ensuring the quality and consistency of style.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:

Luscious mouthfilling raisined fruit combine with the oak flavours to produce a wine of great length.

"Rutherglen fortified houses with extensive back vintages often bring in older blending material to give the introductory Rutherglen level extra depth and character. Campbells has such reserves. Mid amber in hue, distinctive aromas of tea leaf, toasted almond and butterscotch. Deceptively deep for its classification level. Yes, it's fresh and lively, but there's also a savoury nutty complexity. Fab value plus. 375ml." - Jeni Port - 92 points
