Glorious intense fruit cake, raisins and Christmas dried figs. What gets me is the balance. Yes it is sweet and intense on the palate but there is a savoury edge that balances the lusciousness. Flavours on the nose continue on the palate as well as offering treacle, and caramel. But its all so well balanced with that sweetness being cut, which means you can enjoy a second glass. Superb.
Campbells of Rutherglen Grand Rutherglen Muscat NV, Rutherglen, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
