OUT OF STOCK

99 Points - Robert Parker

The Calliope is pure perfection. It is an amber-colored nectar with extraordinary perfume, incredible richness, and a finish that lingers on the palate, seemingly, forever. Australia continues to be a treasure trove for fortified, after-dinner wines. Once bottled, they do not change, and often age up to a decade where well stored. After opening, most will last for a week. This is one of the top wine discoveries of this year's tastings. Many consumers are going to be overjoyed with this offering.

Region

Rutherglen is a wine producing region in north-eastern Victoria and has a long established record for making the finest examples of Muscat in Australia, if not the world. Its Muscats and Tokays are internationally recognised for their quality and unique style. One of the contributing factors to Rutherglen’s unique appeal is the climate; a variety of soils, with warm summers and cool evenings give grapes in this region a huge opportunity to ripen. While the area does offer a range of red and white table wines indicative of the region, it remains infamous for its incredible fortified wines and blockbuster reds. We can highly recommend both the Chambers Rosewood Grand Muscat and the Calliope Muscat – both awarded a near perfect 99 points from Robert Parker!
