I had gotten this R.L. Buller and Son Fine Muscat at one of my local wine stores. It was prices well and recommended by the wine buyer. I thoroughly enjoy a fine Muscat as an after dinner aperitif. It was an excellent choice and one I will get again. After doing some research, this is what I’ve learned about this wine.
R.L. Buller Wines (Buller Wines), established in 1921, is a fourth generation family winery based in the Swan Hill and Rutherglen regions of Victoria, Australia. Calliope Winery is their original vineyard located in the Rutherglen wine region, where you can find a beautiful bird park, one of their key features.
Rutherglen is a small town named after a Scottish village located near Glasgow. The main street of Rutherglen maintains its historical charm, with most of the shops retaining the same look they had a century ago. It was originally a gold-mining town of the mid-19th century since developed into a significant wine producing area, with over 17 wineries all located within a short drive from the center of town. The area is best known for their Muscat and a good port style of fortified wine.
The Buller winemakers have a passion for ensuring that each bottle they produce is of the highest standards possible. Their Premium Fine Muscat is created using the traditional fermentation methods. As the mature wine is bottled, part of the wine is removed and replaced with wine from a new vintage. This is to ensure a consistent product.
This is what the wine maker has to say about this delightful R.L. Buller and Son Fine Muscat:
“Our Premium Fine Muscat is a complex, highly aromatic, full-bodied dessert wine at a spectacular value. Lively notes of raisin, toffee, caramel, molasses and roasted nuts on the nose and palate are accented by hints of coffee, chocolate and candied orange peel on the lingering finish. This Fine Muscat can be an interesting match for a range of fruit desserts, soft, ripe blue cheeses and nuts.”
This is a wine to be savor in small amounts. It was remarkable with a lovely blue cheese.
You can find R.L. Buller & Son Fine Muscat on their website, wine.com, totalwine.com, or most any quality wine outlet. Just ask your local wine buyer. Enjoy!
