Seppeltsfield Rare Tokay (375ml)

Several months ago we reviewed the outstanding new Seppeltsfield 'Grand' fortifieds from Rutherglen. With the release of their 'Rare' Fortifieds, Seppeltsfield are now clearly in league alongside the greatest exponents of these uniquely Australian wines. But what's the difference you might ask? Several years ago, a voluntary classification of Rutherglen Muscats and Tokays was implemented. Each wine is classified in ascending order of quality with the average age stipulations for each descriptor graded as follows: for 'Rutherglen', two to five years old; for 'Classic', five to 12 years old; for 'Grand', 12 to 20 years old, and for 'Rare', 20 years or more. Naturally, there's an enormous difference in the concentration and complexity of wines distinguished by these grades - not to mention price.

American wine guru, Robert Parker, has described Rutherglen as producing some of the 'world's greatest dessert wines',

When compared with first growth Sauternes or a Pedro Ximenez Sherry of similar age, purchasing a bottle or two of these amazing fortifieds will seem less like blatant hedonism and more like carefully considered insurance against the chance of an extended winter.

This is a new release of Rare, sourced from the Seppeltsfield Solera system that was established in 1983. Deep sienna brown colour with deep brown olive green hue. Top note of caramel, toffee, raisin and honey followed by a hint of molasses. Fine spirit lift. Superb rich luscious mouthfeel – every bit as good as the original blend. Mouthfilling flavours of honey, raisins and toffee. Fine, warm, but superb old brandy spirit backbone. Very long aftertaste of toffee, honey and liquorice. Winner of 4 Trophies and 48 Gold Medals in Australian Wine Shows since 1990.
