External Reviews for R.L. Buller & Son Calliope Rutherglen Rare Tokay

External Review
05/19/2011

Sweet, spicy and subtle, an elegant dessert wine with pretty flavors of brown sugar, hazelnut, caramel and exotic spices swirling around a slick core of cherry flavor way down deep in the middle of the wine.

Aromas of caramel, dark toffee and treacle. Intensely sweet and tangy to taste. This trophy wine is made from 90-year-old Muscadelle vines planted in red loamy soil. The wine is hand plunged and fermented with wild yeasts, then aged in well-seasoned oak. As Rutherglen is characterized by its long Indian summers and abundant rainfall - on average 60 cm falls annually - only the best yeas are acceptable for the Rare Tokay, whose first vintage dates back to the 1940s. The Calliope label is reserved for Buller’s top wines. It is named in honor of the British ship Calliope which was immortalized by the famous Australian poet Banjo Patterson in his iconic poem The Battle of the Calliope.

The N.V. Calliope Tokay, amber/brown in color, is intense, thick, and rich with aromas and flavors of caramel, English toffee, tangerine, and orange peel leading to a 60+ second finish.

The Calliope is pure perfection. It is an amber-colored nectar with extraordinary perfume, incredible richness, and a finish that lingers on the palate, seemingly, forever. At $50, it is a steal. Australia continues to be a treasure trove for fortified, after-dinner wines. Once bottled, they do not change, and often age up to a decade where well stored. After opening, most will last for a week. This is one of the top wine discoveries of this yearrsquo;s tastings. Many consumers are going to be overjoyed with this offering.

The prodigious, dark amber-colored Calliope Rare Tokay boasts colossal aromatics and flavors of melted caramels, coffee, toffee, candied fruits marinated in cognac, magnificent richness, and a huge finish that lasts over 70 seconds. My tasting notes for these wines were virtually identical to those from my report in issue #155 as the solera blends for these cuvees remain essentially the same. I did rate the Victoria Tawny slightly higher this year. Readers just need to be aware that these fortifieds must be tasted to be believed as they are among the worldrsquo;s most profound after-dinner fortified wines.
