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
( 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.
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.
Mostly sourced from the Rutherglen, the heartland of Australia’s great “stickies,” this has a red-tawny color and a really luscious expression of rich, raisiny black Muscat fruit with a hint of orange rind. It’s a wonderfully exuberant wine that is really terrific value for money.
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.
The non-vintage Museum Release Muscat (about 8 years of age) exhibits a dark amber color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of caramel, toffee, raisins, prunes, and spice. Rich, long, and impressively endowed, it will offer enjoyment over the next 5andndash;7 years, although I am sure it will last longer.
The Non-Vintage Museum Reserve Muscat is medium amber with a superb bouquet of honey, ginger, candied apricots, and peach. Ripe, sweet, and hedonistic, it has a very long finish.
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.
