100pts – The Land Down Under's Legendary Dessert Wine
Rutherglen proves yet again that they are producers of some of the world's best dessert wines. R.L. Buller & Sons leads the way with its flagship bottling of Calliope Rare Muscat. Calliope is comprised of 100% Muscat harvested from 90 year-old vines on the Buller estate in Rutherglen. This blend of Muscat vintages employs the solera system of aging and is comprised only of the very best vintages, some of which date back more than 30 years. The wine comes exclusively in half bottles (375ml).
Reviewers from all over the world have raved about this Australian treasure, but perhaps none more loudly than Robert Parker and the staff of The Wine Advocate:
"...boasts a deep, dark amber color as well as layers of flavor and constantly changing aromatics of brown sugar, fig, molasses, and Lord knows what else. It is an extraordinary beverage. These Australian treasures are fabulous to drink at the end of a meal. Moreover, once opened, they will hold for several weeks, sometimes longer...its freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed...100." – Robert Parker.
Our allocation of this extremely rare wine is miniscule, but these half-bottles are in stock and, more importantly, ready to drink. Regardless of how your holiday season treats you this year, you can guarantee that this gem will finish it off on a high note!
