Our Topaques and Muscats are the absolute heart and soul of our winery. In the warmer months the intense smell is almost intoxicating as the warmth of the sun brings to life the aromas in each cask and envelopes every corner of the cellar. In the cooler months the red faced casks cheer up visitors who pass through with the whisperings of ghosts past and every layer of wine with a story to tell.
The rare Isabella Topaque and Merchant Prince Muscat have five generations of the Campbell family in each glass. Generations of blood, sweat, determination and bloody hard work have gone into making these wines. Complex layers of fruit, texture and aromas are simply captivating.
It is always amazing to see the expression on a newcomer’s face when they taste them for the first time.
At Campbells, we use a solera system to ensure our Topaques and Muscats retain a beautiful consistency throughout. The solera has been many years in the making, giving us the ability to closely monitor each release, ensuring that we retain the elegance and finesse that our wines are so well known for.
