A little too much alcohol on the finish for my tastes, but it really dresses up plain vanilla ice cream! [85] Read more

Beautiful crystal clear color of earl grey tea with hints of copper. Viscous in nature with thick legs. Aroma of black tea leaves, acetone, grapes, baked crème brule and dried fruits. Heavy mouth feel, almost of syrup with a lingering mouth coating finish. Raisin, caramel, tea leaves, toffee, and burnt raisin all show up on the palate, while the alcohol shows itself in a warming finish. Rich unctuous texture with a bit of a cloying nature that is not entirely unpleasant while the acid tries to cleanse the finish. A bit of Cabreles cheese from Spain helps to lend a touch of acidity that is missing in the wine by itself. The saltiness of the cheese also brings out fruitiness in the wine that’s not there by itself. Not bad but a bit too cloying for me without the acidity to balance it. [NR]

Excellent wine for the bottom tier but it is produced from Muscadelle not Furmint

Absolutely superb with fresh raspberries, slightly sweetened whipped cream and hazelnut meringues made with muscovado sugar & roasted hazelnuts.

An everyday dessert wine with rich aromas of caramal and sultana raisins. Rich and viscous on the palate. Drinking well today. This stickie is made with a solera system that blends many back vintages.

From an Austrralian family with over 140 years in Australain winemaking this fine sticky wine, luscious with butterscotch toffee and tea leaf gains support from orange peel acidity. The palate is ever evolving and shows multiple personalities as it opens in the glass. One finds honey comb to gently singed brown sugar all in one glass. Please serve with vanilla ice cream, fruity desserts or soft cheeses. As well, you may lightly chill and serve as an aperitif or as an after dinner drink with coffee. This was the last bottling of the Rutherglen Toaky. Hungary claimed Intellectual Property rights to the name in 2005. This is late harvest Muscadelle, left on the vine to fully ripen until raisined and laden with natural sugar. The resulting wine is then blended with wines from previous vintages to produce a consistent style and contains portions from a number of vintages over several years.

Deep gold, sweet and syrupy, featuring caramelized pineapple, burnt marshmallow and gentle spice flavors that play out with finesse. Drink now. Wine Spectator. A Muscadelle wine from Victoria in Australia. N.V. Campbells Tokay 375ml

...beguiling for its sweet, spicy, generous range of flavors, offering dried apricot, pear and vanilla notes with touches of exotic spice as they echo effortlessly... Wine Spectator. A Muscadelle wine from Victoria in Australia. N.V. Campbells Tokay 375ml

Sweet and fragrant with rose petal and strawberry, picking up lots of almond and cashew notes as the finish persists impressively. Muscadelle. Drink now.

This is sweet and silky, with a light feel to the texture and gorgeous apricot, orange marmalade and date-nut bread flavors, lingering on the polished finish. Muscadelle. Drink now.

The heady, light amber-colored non-vintage Tokay (Muscadelle) is pure marmalade and molasses offered in an unctuously-textured style. Justifiably renowned for their tremendous dessert wines, Campbellandrsquo;s 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.

Winemaker's Notes:

"This classification is the foundation of the style; displaying the fresh aromas, rich fruit, clean spirit and great length of flavour on the palate, which are the mark of all the Tokays of Rutherglen. The Tokays of Rutherglen bear a mark of authenticity – an oval logotype with a stylised “R” – which is only applied to the wines drawn from the great vineyards of the region. The “Tokay of Rutherglen” trademark assures the highest quality of wine exclusively sourced from the Rutherglen Wine Region. Campbells’ ‘house style’ is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of fruit flavours." Colin Campbell Tasting Notes: A deep, brilliant old gold colour. A bouquet of lifted toffee, honey and cold tea characters combine to produce the unique character of Rutherglen Tokay. Toffee and tea-leaf characters predominate on the front of the palate with a cleansing hint of spirit and old oak on the finish. Blended for optimum flavour and balance prior to bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening. Serving Suggestions: A mouthwatering combination served chilled with honeycomb ice-cream, fig or quince based desserts and soft cheeses. Chill to use as an aperitif or dessert wine or serve at room temperature at the end of the meal with coffee and chocolate caramels. Winemaking Details: 100% Rutherglen Tokay (Muscadelle) from Campbells Rutherglen vineyards. Each vintage the tokay grapes are left on the vine to fully ripen until raisined and laden with natural sugar. The resulting wine is then blended with wines from previous vintages to produce a consistent house style. This wine contains portions from a number of vintages over several years. Technical Details: Alc: 17.5%
