Campbells Muscat Rutherglen Classic 2012
Tasting Notes : Thenon-vintage Muscat reveals a dark amber color in addition to gorgeous aromas of molasses, prunes, maple syrup, and toffee.Justifiably renowned for their tremendous dessert wines, Campbells four cuvees all performed impressively well, making one wonder if the price difference between the regular and rare offerings is really worth it. Certainly there is a bit more complexity and intensity to the Rare Tokay and Rare Muscat, which emerge from a solera system averaging 60 years of age. In any event, the tasting notes for all four wines are nearly identical to any of the great Australian fortifieds, such as Buller, Chambers Rosewood, etc.
The wineries of the Rutherglen Wine Region and North East Victoria are the state’s most popular destination for winery visitors and Campbells is one of the top 10 most visited wineries in Victoria.
Beautiful caramel color with medium legs. Raisin, caramel, and pear tones. Thin honey texture. Alcohol content was a bit high for us. Sweet flavor lingers on the tongue. Probably would be better w/a cheese plate than the sweet bread w/fresh berries we paired it with.
