Tokay Murray, Rutherglen Victoria
The wines of Buller are the result of four generations experience growing the most superlative fruit and vinifying the most resplendent examplars of Rutherglen. Name for the sleepy hamlet at the heart of the Swan Hill winegrowing region, Beverford is a range of wines fashioned for contemporary Australian palates. An immensely satisfying, generous Old Tokay with a profoundly fruit driven palate and lusciously aged rancio characters. The older material in the blend provides weight and depth of flavour, the younger wines contribute freshness and vigour.
Matriarch Valerie Buller is still actively involved in the running of the business - her background as one of the first ever female wines sales reps in Australia equipping her with a formidable business mind. Valerie Buller also built the beautiful bird park that is a key feature at the winery. Buller Wines has two cellar doors, one at Calliope in Rutherglen and the other at the Beverford winery near Swan Hill. The magnificent cellars house stocks of ageing vintage wines which have been fortified and set aside for selection and inclusion into Fine Old Tokays which are endowed with the rich expression of Rutherglen. Buller was treated to maturation in a selection of seasoned oak hogsheads. Alcohol 18.0%
A dark amber colour with orange brown tints. Sweet toffee and malt aromas before a smooth textured palate with toffee, malt and caramel sweetness, hints of butterscotch and orange peel. Good length and weight of palate lead onto a warming spirit finish.
