Dark bronze-gold colour with hints of amber. Intense, fresh and fruity aromatics with characters of honey, butterscotch, crème brulee, creamy caramel, dried oranges, orange blossom, dried pears, tea-cake, malt, and green tea. These characters are also evident on the palate which is luscious with a hint of jasmine and fresh layers of flavour which linger in the mouth. This wine has a luscious texture with the gentle warmth of clean spirit and well-balanced sweetness complementing the finish.
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.
