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
Deep amber. Full body. Medium acid. Lots of fruit and oak. Nuts, molasses, nutmeg, raisins. Warm and sherry-like, with rich texture and syrupy fruit. A host of sweet, oak-related flavors dominate throughout. Fine length.
Wine Advocate ReviewThe non-vintage Museum Reserve Muscat is exotic, full-bodied, rich, and sweet. It spent 7 years in wood, and was bottled from a solera system. This amber-hued, rich, unctuously-textured effort boasts luscious aromas and flavors of marmalade, figs, chocolate, melted caramel, toffee, and prunes. Once again, Australia proves this country is hard to beat when it comes to their fortified after-dinner wines, which still sell for a song.
Reddish amber color. Full-bodied. golden raisin, maple syrup, brown spice. Sweet nose has complex, spicy accents and a long finish.

Flavors of caramel and roasted orange melt into a treacly sweetness. This is a gentle dessert wine to assuage a sweet tooth.
Silky and seductive, sweet, rich and loaded with flavor, offering coffee, walnut, orange peel, cherry, cream and exotic spice flavors just don't quit. Drink now through 2020.
