The sensational non-vintage Muscat possesses 230 grams per liter of residual sugar, 17% alcohol (typical for this region’s fortified cuvees), a deep amber color, good unctuosity, and a sweet bouquet of brandy macerated raisins, molasses, caramels, and toffee. Rich, full-bodied, and extraordinarily intense, it is an amazing wine. This cuvee is based on 20–25-year old soleras.

The non-vintage Muscat reveals a dark amber color in addition to gorgeous aromas of molasses, prunes, maple syrup and toffee.

This wine is so intensely textured and flavored, you’ve got to brace yourself. Packed with ultra sweet honey, peach, dried apricot, toast, walnut, coffee, caramel, licorice and sesame notes, it holds onto the palate with bright acidity and length. Massive.

Sweet and spicy, this sneaks up on you, starting off with pretty brown sugar notes and adding layers of spice, prune, raisin and fig that linger on the extra-long finish.

The Non-Vintage Rutherglen Muscat is amber-colored with an alluring perfume of apricot and dried fruits, caramel, and toffee. Full-bodied (17.5% alcohol), sweet, and complex, it is also a great value.

The dense amber-colored non-vintage Muscat exhibits a sweet nose of toffee, maple syrup, and figs along with huge body, and no cloying sweetness because of good acidity.

Delicately floral on the nose, this sweet but wonderfully balanced Muscat offers a fine introduction to the Rutherglen Muscat style. Pineapple, raisin and spice flavors persist a good long time, trailing elegantly away on the finish.

Sweet, syrupy and spicy, with a strong current of brown sugar, coffee, tobacco and nutmeg running through the raisin and earth flavors. Drink now.

Scents of rosewater lift the dense, heady fruit of this wine, more about luscious richness than complexity. It’s a delicious sugar fix, the sweetness cut by fresh acidity so it finishes clean.

Dark tawny in color, with exotic spice, coffee, walnut and pecan grace notes to the rich caramel ad cherry flavors, which linger on the sweet, generous finish. Drink now.

The non-vintage Muscat exhibits a brown/amber color as well as a terrific nose of melted caramels, coffee, marmalade, and molasses. Sweet, rich, and unctuously-textured, it should be consumed over the next 4–5 years.

Sweet and spicy, this is fragrant with coffee, walnut and chocolate overtones to the vague cherry flavors, lingering nicely on the balanced finish. Drink now.

Spicy, with candied orange peel overtones to the coffee and cider flavors, lingering on the chai-like finish. This has finesse and complexity. Drink now.

One of the illustrious names in Australian fortified dessert wines, Campbell’s has been making these gems since 1870. There is no question that the non-vintage Muscat and Tokay are terrific buys. They are loaded with fruit, unctuous, sweet and already complex, with stunning aromatics. Moreover, they will keep for decades.

Deep amber with a bright rim. Smoky cherry, cocoa and toffee on the nose, with notes of black cardamom and molasses. Fleshy, palate-staining and sweet, offering juicy brown sugar and caramel flavors, along with a penetrating smokiness. Clings to the palate, finishing with an echo of bitter cherry pit and persistent toffee and molasses notes. Richer and less spicy than the muscadelle and a good call for chocolate desserts.

:

Dark copper with a hint of red at the rim. Burnt orange, toffee, marzipan and smoky herbs on the nose, with a deeper note of molasses sneaking up with air. Very sweet and broad in the mouth, repeating the toffee and molasses qualities and showing very good depth. This distinctly syrupy wine is more powerful than the tokay, finishing with a very good thrust and lingering notes of brown sugar and toffee apple.

This bright dessert Muscat has fresh flavors of golden raisin on a texture as rich as a PX Sherry. It’s a toffee dessert in a glass, balanced to enjoy on its own or with hazelnut biscotti.

This sweet, silky Muscat is nicely filled out with flavors of roasted walnut, coffee, clove, nutmeg and lychee, persisting enticingly on the finish. Drink now.

:

The NV Muscat has a pale brown color with a green tinge. This nose is simple and pure, giving notes of mashed raisins and a whiff of ginger cake. The palate is incredibly sweet and viscous with a relatively medium to high level of acidity that is only slightly wanting in more piquancy into the long sticky finish.

Orange-tinged amber. Rich and toasty on the nose, with dark toffee, cherry and singed orange peel. Fat and viscous, with sweet orange, caramel and dark honey flavors. Finishes with notes of bourbon and vanilla.

: October 1, 2007

Caramel and orange notes. Very good length. Nutty.

: February 1, 2009

The Muscats of Rutherglen are sadly underrated. Sumptuously rich, fortified wines, with plenty of rich, succulent fruits, aged through a solera system.
