Yalumba Muscat Rutherglen Museum Show Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from the red and pink clones of the Muscat, a petite grains grape variety, this luscious dessert wine displays all the characteristics of this classic Australian wine style. Deep tawny red. Full, luscious middle. Richly flavoured, reminiscent of raisined fruits, nuts and spices. Sweet and soft yet unclaying finish. Incredible persistence of flavours.

The Yalumba Wine Company:
Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life.

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around". Six generations and more than 150 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.

The non-vintage Museum Reserve Antique Tawny is a concoction of multiple grapes from a 16-year-old solera. It exhibits a medium amber color, fabulous ripeness, and a huge bouquet of honeyed fruits, prunes, plums, and a hint of figs.

Sweet bordering on syrupy but nicely held in check by sufficient acidity allowing the coffee sassafras vanilla and clotted cream flavors to glide effortlessly through the expressive finish. Drink now. Wine Spectator.

( 17; for 375 ml.) Orange-tinged brown. High-pitched cherry peach pit and dried rose aromas. Very thick but juicy in the mouth offering chewy flavors of toffeed apple fruitcake and maple. Thick and oily on the finish with a lingering maple syrup note. . (Negociants USA Napa CA) 91 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
