Description

Rutherglen Topaque and Muscat are one of the special treats in the wine world, especially with respect to aromas and flavours. There are few experiences like this and a must-try if you have never had one. Rutherglen is the home to these gems, fortified wines, aged in barrel and where the quality level dictates the age of the wine and sweetness level. Topaque is the new name given to this style, formerly called Tokaji, which is no longer allowed as this is a place famous for its own sweet wines. Made from Muscadelle grapes and true to Australian form the fermenting juice is fortified on skins, stopping the fermentation, producing a sweet wine. These fortified wines are typically aged in non-air-conditioned cellars resulting in evaporation (the angles portion) which concentrates the wine left in barrel. A slow oxidative process that takes time, but the end result is nothing short of heavenly.

Smells

complex aromas of sultanas soaked in cold tea, mixed spice, and hessian sack (old fashioned sacks that coffee was packaged in) with hints of dried apricots and toffee apples

Tastes

lusciously sweet balanced by the warming alcohol giving a refreshing finish but a heavenly experience with every sip. Flavours of sultana, cold tea and toffee persist on the palate with delicious toasty nuances of the old oak barrels in which they age. A real must-try and at Christmas this is a treat for everyone to enjoy with cheese, dried fruits, and nuts.
