External Reviews for R.l. Buller & Son Fine Tokay
Bright orange-hued brown. Pungent aromas of apricot and peach pit, mint, cherry and dried rose. Sappy, spicy cherry and pit fruit flavors are lifted by a zesty spice note and complicated by suggestions of succulent herbs. The minty quality resonates on the long, slightly sticky finish.
Smooth-textured, with toffee and caramel sweetness balanced by a touch of rancio. Complex hints of nuttiness and some cold tea characters. Good length and weight. Long nutty aftertaste.
The N.V. Fine Tokay is amber colored with flavors of honey, fig, citrus fruits, and orange marmalade. It is well balanced and has a long, pure finish.
This wine is nearly flawless. Fabulously perfumed as well as unctuously textured, it offers incredible notes of prunes, raisins, honey, molasses, roasted nuts, etc., etc. 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 dark-amber-hued Premium Fine Tokay offers sumptuous notes of spice box, Christmas pudding, figs, brown sugar, and molasses. This blend represents the newest bottled offerings from this Rutherglen producer, an area that produces spectacular fortifieds, especially the Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle). Its freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed.
Aromatic toffee and caramel sweetness with hints of nuttiness and tea. Rich palate with wonderful orange/tangerine acidity on the finish.
A bargain among Down Under fortifieds, Bullerrsquo;s Victorian blended Tokay features wonderfully complex notes of tea, spice and citrus atop lush caramel-like sweetness. Itrsquo;s silky and balanced, with a long, citrusy finish.
