Rutherglen, AustraliaSince establishment in 1858 in Victoria's famed Rutherglen region, winemaking duties at Chambers Rosewood have been handed down from father to son through five generations. Recognized the world over for their complexity, intensity and balance, these Muscats and Muscadelles are a national relic; wines expertly crafted from unctuous material that has matured in the family cellars for more than a century. This dessert wine gem has received astonishing ratings from the world's top critics: Parker 95, Tanzer 96, Wine & Spirits 91. You owe it to yourself to taste this elixir of the gods!To make Chambers Rosewood Muscat, grapes of Muscat a Petit Grains ripen and shrivel on the vines producing natural sugar levels in the range of 30-36 degrees Brix. The raisined grapes are then picked, crushed and partially fermented before fortification. Wood aging follows in a program loosely resembling a solera system, lasting, in same cases, for over 100 years. The wine is amber gold in color with copper hues, the nose offers fresh raisins, sultanas, lifted spirit and cinnamon oak spices. The palate is rich and silky, its sweet dried fruits balanced by aged oak tannins and bright acidity, providing a clean, rather than cloying, finish.Enjoy Chambers Rosewood Muscat as a dessert in itself or with pannacotta, fruit tarts and dessert cheeses.
