R.L.Buller and Son Premium Fine Muscat, findingourwaynow.comI 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.

The Rutherglen wine area is named after the town of Rutherglen located in the North Eastern region of Victoria, Australia.

R.L.Buller and Son Premium Fine Muscat, findingourwaynow.comRutherglen 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:

R.L.Buller and Son Premium Fine Muscat, findingourwaynow.com

“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.

R.L. Buller and Son Fine Muscat would go nicely with my Rustic Mixed Berry Tart or a nice after dinner cheese course. Enjoy.

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!

    You’re setting the scene for a great dinner party here Susan!
    Sounds rather delicious, and if it’s a good match for blue cheese – I think I’ll check it out. Nice to see it has a UK connection :)

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Jacs, It is really good with blue cheese. That makes it a winner in my mind for sure. :-)

  • http://twitter.com/JeriWB Jeri Walker-Bickett

    Hmmm, I’ve not dabbled much in dessert wines. Which of course means I will have to soon fix that…

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Aw, you must, Jeri. They are just so interesting and can add so much to the end of a meal. :-)

  • Julie

    This sound really good. I do like a good aperitif, especially with blue cheese after a meal and this may worth finding.

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Then you will enjoy this one Julie, Cheers. :-)

  • HB

    I’m not much for a sweet wine, but I do like what you said about it and where it comes from. The town sounds really neat.

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi HB, Not everyone does and that’s OK. That’s why there is so much variety in the wine world. There is always something for everybody. :-)

    The description sounds akin to a barley wine. I wouldn’t mind doing a side by side comparison.

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi Jon, That is a very good idea. We need to think about that in the future. :-)

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    I’d love to visit Australia and try it. What exactly is a dessert wine? Do they always have dessert flavor hints in them?

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Me too, Krystle. It is on my bucket list for sure. A dessert wine is usually a sweeter wine that is treated more like a liqueur. Many times it’s been fortified with brandy or some sort of alcohol. :-)

      • HomeJobsbyMOM

        Sounds like something I’d probably like :)

        • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

          I do believe you would. :-)

  • Candace M. Braddock

    Thank you so much for this post!
    I have not been to a wine tasting in awhile, so I am rather ignorant when it comes to dessert wines. This post puts me in the loop. i can’t wait to find this and present it during Date Night :)

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi Candace, and welcome. It’s a fun wine for that. The best part is it will be something I believe you will enjoy as well. :-)

  • http://twitter.com/m4bmarketing Susan Oakes

    I don’t think I have ever tasted Muscat, probably because I am not into dessert wines. Always enjoy the background you give about the regions.

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi Susan, A good dessert wine my change your mind. :-). The info on this wine made me want to visit Australia even more… :-)

  • A.K. Andrew

    I love Muscat & think of it as a rare treat, so glad to have the recommendation. Thanks Susan.

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi AK, Then you will enjoy this one for sure. Enjoy my friend. :-)

  • Adrienne

    I love wine Susan but I admit not being a connoisseur myself. I go more for Zinfandels and sweet and/or fruity wines. This one doesn’t sound like one that I would like with the flavors that you mentioned but I do enjoy learning the history. Pretty neat and glad you enjoyed it.


    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi Adrienne, Not all are fans of an aperitif or dessert type wine. I do love a good Zin and am always in search of one. To me, the beauty of wine is there is always something for every taste. :-)

  • Merle Gibbins

    Great post Susan. My fathers side of the family were all from Rutherglen but I have learnt something new today about the wine. You always associate whiskey with Scotland !!

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi Merle, Thanks, my friend. That is very cool. I agree, when I think of Scotland I always think of their amazing whiskey.

  • http://twitter.com/geekgirlusa Cheryl Therrien

    Love the bottle! :)

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      I do to Cheryl, It can be reused of other things too. :-)

  • Jessica Fedorko

    I’ve never had Muscat, I will definitely have to try it… Personally I love learning the history of wines. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to reading more on wine so I can show off my knowledge at dinner parties ;-)

    • http://findingourwaynow.flywheelsites.com/ Susan Cooper

      Hi Jessica, It pleases me that I am able to help in that way :-), I think you’ll enjoy this wine when you try it. :-)
