Tokay Muscadelle Rutherglen Victoria
Prodigious, dark amber-colored, boasts colossal aromatics and flavors of melted caramels, coffee, toffee, candied fruits marinated in cognac, magnificent richness, and a huge finish that lasts over seventy seconds. These fortifieds must be tasted to be believed as they are among the world's most profound after-dinner fortified wines, 100 Points.
An extraordinary wine of profound and complex character displaying all the attributes expected of a classic. A stablemate to the Rare Liqueur Muscat but made from a different grape. Muscadelle is the fruit here, for which Australia has adopted the synonym Tokay. The Buller brothers are indebted to their winemaking father and grandfather for having the foresight to put down blending stocks of the best vintages from years long past. This wine is aged in cask at the winery prior to bottling and will not improve with further cellaring.
Deep amber. Spiced nuts, Cuban coffee, toffee, melted butter and brown sugar aromas are broad and explosive. This completely coats the glass. Thick and viscous, with powerful flavors of vanilla bean, honey, Bananas Foster and toffeed apple. This almost overwhelms the palate. Clings on the back end, showing almost oily concentration and unreal length. Remarkable stuff.
