Yalumba Muscat Rutherglen Show Reserve 2005
Aromas of ginger and candied apricots along with some woodiness. It's big, rich, ripe and hedonistic on the palate. Sweet, dark honey and wood. 9/24/11Add winemaker's notes

Tried this beautifully complex sweet wine from Oz today. I usually don't like port style wines but the amber-colored nectar totally impressed me! Firing on all cylinders, this Muscat gives you fig, orange-chocolate, brown honey, golden raisins, molasses, marmalade, and a velvet finish that goes on for days! ... AND it runs for under $15! Simply gorgeous!
Brown sugar, baked apples and utter delight.
A bit on the sour side. Not my favorite.
Had this once whist visiting a friend in Barossa. Delish!
External Reviews for Yalumba Muscat Rutherglen Show Reserve
Yalumba is a fabulous source of antique fortifieds that often sell for a song. Provocative and distinctive is the non-vintage Museum Muscat. A killer value, it offers aromas of melted toffee, brandy-macerated raisins, prunes, maple syrup, molasses, and ripe figs. It is a stunning offering to enjoy at the end of a meal, or as dessert. None of these Australian fortifieds improve in the bottle, but they rarely change and can be kept for a long time. Once opened, they should be consumed within 4andndash;7 days.
This Australian andldquo;stickyandrdquo; rivals the quality of many more-prestigious versions, at a fraction of the price. Itandrsquo;s a gorgeous mouthful of spice and walnut, sweet and opulent, and is deep with clove, coffee, dried litchi and berry flavors that linger with hints of tangerine peel on the finish. Yummy.
( 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.
If you like old tawnies from the Douro, here’s an impressive alternative at a remarkable price. The flavors don’t stop, from apricot to lemon, roasted hazelnut, caramel, orange marmalade, honey and honeydew rind — something tangy and slightly rancio, along with something refreshing to hold the wine’s sweetness in check. It’s delicate, in fact, harmonious, with a slow fade that encourages another sip.
Silky and seductive, sweet, rich and loaded with flavor, offering coffee, walnut, orange peel, cherry, cream and exotic spice flavors just donandrsquo;t quit. Drink now through 2020.
This Australian specialty is as enveloping as satin sheets: soft, warm, and shivering rich. It may be old and liquorish, but it is not tired. just try to pin down the complex flavors — fig, quince marmalade, nectarine. Any individual elements are smothered by the harmony of the wine. Curl up in bed with a glass and it take over with pure deliciousness.
