Description

This classification is a maturing style imparting greater levels of richness and complexity; exhibiting the beginnings of the distinctive dry ‘aged oak’ characters produced from prolonged maturation in mature oak. Deep amber with tawny hues. Rich fresh raisin fruit aromas with great depth and showing some dry ‘aged oak’ characters. Great power and intense fruit with balance and elegance. There is evidence of mellow oak with the luscious lingering finish. Excellent with vintage cheddar or blue vein cheeses, dried fruit and fresh nuts or as a memorable end to a meal with freshly brewed coffee.

Awards

95 pts James Halliday Wine Companion

Oh, what sweet bliss. Elegant, intense and ethereal in the glass. Medium amber. Roasted almond, lemon peel, fig and toffee meet potpourri. No shortage of power or intensity on the palate revealing brandy-soaked raisins, lemon drops and licorice with Italian panforte and, of course, roasted nuts. Wood age characters meld with the freshest, most neutral spirit to deliver a clean pair of heels. Hard to believe this is just the second tier on The Muscat Classification. Average age 6-10 years.
