Buller Wines Fine Old Muscat
Brothers RICHARD AND ANDREW BULLER are continuing the great fortified wine making tradition established by their father and grandfather. We first met the Buller family in the mid 70’s and pioneered the sale of their fortified wines in Melbourne. Today the brothers enjoy an international reputation for their fortified’s, largely enhanced by Andrew’s winemaking experience with TAYLORS (the famous Port producers) in Portugal. Deep sienna brown colour with olive hue. Lifted nose, with aroma of honey, ripe raisins, hints of toffee and fine old brandy spirit. The palate is rich with luscious honeyed raisin flavours dominant, followed by a layer of spice and orange rind. Clean finish, with long aftertaste of honey, raisins, toffee and orange marmalade.
Robert Parker's Review
The medium dark amber-colored Premium Fine Muscat (100% Muscat) reveals terrific aromas of toffee, melted caramel, molasses, brown sugar, hazelnuts, and smoke.
