The two rare cuvees are pure nectar. My favorite is the virtually perfect non-vintage Rare Muscat Merchant Prince. Its dark amber color is aaccompanied by an extraordinary perfume of toffee, caramels, prunes, and raisins with hints of maple syrup and soy. Although its viscosity is reminiscent of motor oil, the wine is not cloyingly sweet because of good underlying acidity as well as surprising tannin that frames this enormously endowed, sweet elixir. This stunning offering is one of Australia's treasures.

Intensely sweet, rich and exotic, yet it retains a remarkable sense of refinement, with beautifully focused flavors of prune and dried Muscat grapes at the core, layered with espresso, sweet smoke, cardamom and ginger flavors, which echo forever on the finish.

Sweet and spicy, this sneaks up on you, starting off with pretty brown sugar notes and adding layers of spice, prune, raisin and fig that linger on the extra-long finish. Not at all harsh. Drink now.(WS)

Dense amber-colored, and incredibly unctuous is the non-vintage Rare Muscat Merchant Prince. Reeking of brandy-macerated raisins, sweet honeyed nuts, molasses, caramel, and toffee, its good underlying acidity gives uplift and vibrancy to the incredibly rich flavors. This is a remarkable effort with levels of texture and richness that must be tasted to be believed.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Campbell family winemaking heritage began in 1870, when Scotsman, John Campbell vintaged his first wine from his " Bobbie Burns" vineyard. The venture prospered and by 1885 he had 15 hectares planted to vines. Today the vineyards total over 64 hectares and their wines are known and appreciated in major markets throughout the world including the United Kingdom, the USA and Canada. The wines are distinctive and world class. They spring from the unique qualities of the Rutherglen Wine Region, four generations of knowledge and a dedication to innovation. This premium Rutherglen Muscat has a rich, deep brown with olive green rim with a bouquet of intense raisin fruit with nutty rancio complexity that only comes from very lengthy maturation in oak casks. The palate is the ultimate in intensity. Raisined sweetness explodes on the front of the palate. Complex nutty flavours flow through the full length of the palate and the drying tannin finish lingers for many minutes. Blended for optimum flavour and balance at the time of bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening.
