This bottle was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/70492.Brown Brothers was founded in 1889 by a John Francis Brown,is still in the same family,but is now one of Australia's major wine producers making a vast range of wines. My bottle is a 50/50 blend of orange muscat and flora,a blend unique to Brown Brothers.The rare flora grape is a cross between semillon and gewurztraminer.These grapes are grown on their 'Mystic Park ' vineyard and are harvested late in order to increase the sugar content because this is a desert wine.I drank my bottle this evening with a plate of bread and cheese and I did enjoy it.As is typical of aged desert wines the colour had gone a deep amber and it was certainly very sweet to the taste like syrup or honey.There was a citrus style fruit there and there was also a slight floral aftertaste on the finish. I did not think it a particuarly complex wine so I feel it is not as good as a sauternes.
