This very old and rare Muscat was carefully nurtured at Tahbilk from 1992 to 2004, on behalf of Seabrook Wine Merchants who had originally purchased from premium Rutherglen wineries with the intent to mature, blend and release. Ultimately moved to Yering Station in the Yarra Valley the barrels came up for sale in 2020. Knowing the rare quality of the fortified wine, now over 60 years old, we did not hesitate in acquiring all four barrels.
Mahogany colour with olive green tinges. Unmistakably Muscat with those raisin aromas and nutty rancio characters. On the palate it is rich, sweet raisin fruit, and an almost treacle-like consistency with complexity of flavours from decades in old oak casks. There is so much flavour and intensity, it simply demands sipping contemplation!
Made available in a dedicated, individual Presentation Box.
Enjoy now and until the first teardrop recognises that the bottle is empty!
