A very limited release of rare old muscat. Deep mahogany-brown in colour with an olive-green rim. The bouquet is lifted with toffee, raisin and spice aromas. Decades of ageing in old oak casks has imparted richness, great rancio complexity and extraordinary depth of flavour. Enjoy and savour on very special occasions.
Peak Drinking: Now
“A powerful dark rich wine with amazing presence and “one hundred per cent concentration”. It has delightful floral aromatics mixed with figs and fruitcake with similar flavours.”
5 Stars Winestate Magazine, Fortified Tasting, July/August 2018
“A very special wine. The nose opens up to chocolaty fruit cake characters and the thick palate has upfront acid that gives a lovely freshness to the wine.”
4.5 Stars Winestate Magazine, Fortified Tasting, May/June 2016
“A very intense aged wine with aromas of dates, caramel and dark chocolate, showing a floral complexity. Light, elegant and floral on the fresh palate with long lingering citrus flavours.” 5 Stars “This is what Australia does best in the World,” said one judge.
