Parcels of intensely flavoured Shiraz grapes, grown to younger vines on the Chambers Rosewood property, are vinified and barrel aged into a generously flavoured Ruby Port. A spiced cherry, black and blueberry bouquet, complexed by sweetly scented liquorice and the savouryness of tar. Mouthfilling palate of ripe plum and cherry fruits over coffee and dark rich chocolate flavours. An impressive finish of great length and lingering dried festive cake fruit characters. The fortified wine of choice to accompany ice cream based desserts and good coffee.
The unpretentious public face of this small family winery belies the fact that they produce some of the richest and most acclaimed wines in the world. Since arriving in Rutherglen, north eastern Victoria, six generations ago, the family has quietly gone about establishing a particularly enviable reputation for their fortified wines. Stephen Chambers is now making his own mark after taking over the winemaking role from his legendary father Bill Chambers OAM.
In 2019 their Old Vine Muscadelle received gold and the trophy for Best Commercial Muscadelle. Their Rutherglen Muscadelle received gold in the same Best Commercial Muscadelle category.
