The non-vintage Muscat reveals a dark amber color in addition to gorgeous aromas of molasses, prunes, maple syrup and toffee.
Sweet, spicy and reasonably complex, offering dusky plum, exotic spice and Darjeeling tea aromas and flavors. The spice and tea flavors linger on the rich, extensive finish. Drink now. 2,200 cases imported. -HS Copper-gold color. Deep, rich and dark in fruit tones on the nose, suggesting black toffee, plum preserves and cherry pit. Broad, sweet and complex, the fruit-driven flavors running from apricot to cherry. Rich on the finish but also juicy and penetrating, with impressive clarity and length. The Non-Vintage Rutherglen Muscat is amber-colored with an alluring perfume of apricot and dried fruits, caramel, and toffee. Full-bodied (17.5% alcohol), sweet, and complex, it is also a great value. ** SOLD OUT **
The Muscats of Rutherglen are sadly underrated. Sumptuously rich, fortified wines, with plenty of rich, succulent fruits, aged through a solera system.
Deep amber with a bright rim. Smoky cherry cocoa and toffee on the nose with notes of black cardamom and molasses. Fleshy palate-staining and sweet offering juicy brown sugar and caramel flavors along with a penetrating smokiness. Clings to the palate finishing with an echo of bitter cherry pit and persistent toffee and molasses notes. Richer and less spicy than the muscadelle and a good call for chocolate desserts. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
This wine is so intensely textured and flavored, you’ve got to brace yourself. Packed with ultra sweet honey, peach, dried apricot, toast, walnut, coffee, caramel, licorice and sesame notes, it holds onto the palate with bright acidity and length. Massive.
Dark copper with a hint of red at the rim. Burnt orange toffee marzipan and smoky herbs on the nose with a deeper note of molasses sneaking up with air. Very sweet and broad in the mouth repeating the toffee and molasses qualities and showing very good depth. This distinctly syrupy wine is more powerful than the tokay finishing with a very good thrust and lingering notes of brown sugar and toffee apple.
Dark tawny in color, with exotic spice, coffee, walnut and pecan grace notes to the rich caramel ad cherry flavors, which linger on the sweet, generous finish. Drink now.
Bright and clear with light pink hues. Typically flamboyant muscat fruit characters; a riot of citrus blossom, sweet summer berries, musk, rosewater and freshly crushed grapes. The palate is true to the bouquet with summer berries, sweet citrus and juicy grape characters all prominent. Spicy musk and a gentle natural spritz add some textural interest to the mid palate, before finishing with a burst of fruit flavor and cleansing acidity.
