Tokay Muscadelle Rutherglen Victoria
One of Australia's most internationally renowned wines, a superb Tokay of opulence and splendour. Its heady, fruit laden, honey and butterscotch nose, underpinned by the sweetness of raisin and aged vanilla, an exquisite concentration, smooth, silky textures and soft, warmth of spirit on the middle palate, a graciously drying finish over lingering length of mellowing, festive fruit characters. Assembled from a range of vintages, the older wines bringing an intensity of flavour, rancio and grape tannins, gently imparting the influence of time, as the wines evolve within a selection of seasoned casks and fine oak barrels.
The grapes are left to hang on the vine to concentrate in flavour and sugar. Hand picked, a partial fermentation, before draining, pressing, and fortification with high strength neutral spirit. The wine is then transferred to casks and barrels for many years of maturation, where the wine will concentrate in flavour and gain more texture and lusciousness. When blending the Premium Tokay only the best wines from the best vintages are chosen, all of which have won awards at major Australian Wine Shows.
