Murray, Rutherglen Victoria
Blessed with a sunny climate, good soils and ample water, the Buller vineyards at Beverford, nestled within the Swan Hill region, produce the richest, nut and citrus flavoured Old Tawny wines which can rival the finest in Victoria. A generously flavoured Old Port in the traditional style, Buller is endowed with great complexity. Sweet fruit and beautifully integrated oak combine to display all the developed characters of long term ageing. Along with the slow transformation in colour from bright ruby to deep tawny, have arrived the most exquisite changes of flavour.
The magnificent Buller 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. The region is blessed by a sunny climate, good soils and ample water, it enjoys the added security of managed irrigation, an insurance against the dry years. It is an ideal place to grow fruit of all types and has become a major contributor to the Australian winegrowing industry. As well as grapes from the Buller's own vineyard, fruit is collected from growers throughout the region, some of whom have supplied Buller for three generations. Maturation in a selection of fine, old oak hogsheads. Alcohol 18.0%
