Inviting aromas of fruitcake, mocha, coffee and figs. Full bodied rich and intensely sweet. Abundant flavours on the palate including toffee, malt, figs, honey and licorice. Intense wine as one would expect from this world class, underrated fortified wine. Grand Muscat average aged is between 15-20 years old. Vintage stated is only an estimate as this is a NV blend.
Stanton & Killeen Grand 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.
