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 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 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)
