Product Description

Halliday 2020 92 pointsJames Halliday 92 PointsMatthew Jukes

Brilliant clarity, deep orange-gold colour with strawberry highlights. Fresh intense varietal aromas of Turkish Delight, musk, tea rose, vanilla, soft sweet spice, fruitcake, raisin, sultana, dried berries, and quince paste finishing with a subtle lift of spirit. Rich and flavoursome layers of fruit, extending those found on the nose (raisin, musk, dried plum, quince, vanilla and spice). Youthful, luscious finish with gentle warmth from spirit.

"This is pale russet red. The fortification spirit that is added after the wine has spent a mere 24 hours on skins before it is pressed introduces an edge to the Christmas cake, raisin, orange peel and spice that define new-born Rutherglen muscat. Truly great value." James Halliday

"There are very few wines in the world that are truly iconic, fairly priced and score as highly as this one does in my notes...................................If there was a magic wand I would have a go at that, too. Suffice to say that Chambers Rosewood makes legendary Muscat and the toffee, rosewater and fig notes in this wine are all-encompassing and I hope that some of the molecules never leave my body because it is clearly a magical elixir. I urge everyone who reads this to buy a bottle." Matthew Jukes
