RATINGS

92Stephen Tanzer

Tangy on entry, giving way to sweet pit fruit and orange marmalade qualities in the middle. Very sweet wine, with strong notes of white pepper and backing spices on the sappy finish.

90Wine Spectator

Sweet and golden, this is nicely balanced to show the spicy pineapple nectar and almond flavors, lingering nicely on the refined, lightly sugary finish.

REGION

Australia, Victoria, Rutherglen

Victoria is one of Australia’s smallest and coolest wine regions, yet one of the nation’s most dynamic and quality-oriented. Unlike many of Australia’s wine regions, which include many large, industrial producers, most Victoria producers are small, independently owned and crush fewer than 25 tons of grapes per year. With more than 600 wineries, Victoria has more producers than any other state, though it ranks third in production. Winemaking started in Victoria in the 1850s when Swiss immigrant Hubert de Castella recognized the area’s winemaking potential. There are many climates and topographies in Victoria, from dry, irrigated inland terroirs to cooler, higher regions. Top sub-appellations include Heathcote, Rutherglen and the Yarra Valley. Shiraz and Chardonnay are the principal grapes grown, though Viognier, Pinot Noir and Tannant are also grown. Of special note is the region’s history with sweet dessert wines made of Muscat. Some are called “Tokay” and are made from the Muscadelle grape. Red dessert, Madeira-style wines are also produced.
