Colour: Deep amber with tawny hues.

Bouquet:Rich fresh raisin fruit aromas with great depth and showing some rancio characters.

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

Wine Spectator 90 points - This sweet, silky Muscat is nicely filled out with flavors of roasted walnut, coffee, clove, nutmeg and lychee, persisting enticingly on the finish. Drink now.—H.S.  (Jan 25 2012)

Wine Advocate 92 points - The Non-Vintage Rutherglen Muscat is amber-colored with an alluring perfume of apricot and dried fruits, caramel, and toffee. Full-bodied (17.5% alcohol), sweet, and complex, it is also a great value.  (Oct 2007)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Dark tawny in color, with exotic spice, coffee, walnut and pecan grace notes to the rich caramel and cherry flavors, which linger on the sweet, generous finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made. (Mar 31 2004)

Wine maker notes
"This classification displays a greater level of richness and complexity, produced through the blending of selected parcels of wine, often matured in various sizes of oak cask to impart the distinctive dry ‘rancio’ characters produced from maturation in seasoned wood. 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. "Campbell’s ‘house style’ is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of raisin fruit flavours." ---Colin Campbell

Food pairing
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.

Producer
Situated entirely within the defined Rutherglen Wine Region, our vineyards total approximately 64 hectares (160 acres) of trialled and proven varieties. Rutherglen’s warm and dependable climate is, in many ways similar to the Rhone region of France and it comes as no surprise that the Rhone specialties of Shiraz (known as Syrah in France) and Durif prosper here.

Pride in the past and a commitment to the future by the Campbell Family today is evident with the 4th generation brothers Malcolm (viticulturist) and Colin (winemaker), who together with their wives Jenny and Prue and their mother Isabel, own and operate Campbells Wines. They have been joined by the fifth generation. Susan, daughter of Colin and Prue is our Marketing Manager and her sister Julie provides valuable input into our winemaking team. Since graduating with Honours in Oenology from Adelaide University in 2000 Julie has pursued her passion for shiraz (and languages) around the globe.

At Campbells, we are in a unique and privileged position. We have over four generations of winemaking knowledge, decades of aged stocks and some of the most modern winemaking technology available. This allows us to not only skillfully manage our ancient soleras to produce our Rutherglen Muscats and Tokays, but to capture the pure natural grape flavours of Rutherglen varieties and express them fully in our reds and whites.
