The Campbell’s are a fourth generation winemaking family dedicated to continuing a tradition begun in 1870, of producing premium quality wines that refl ect the distinctive characteristics of the Rutherglen region. Drawing on their intimate knowledge of the region the Campbells can ensure that they grow grapes of the highest quality. The result is traditional styles of wines with fi nesse and a subtle use of oak complementing the full fruit full avours.
The foundation of the Campbells family, this delicious syrup has stunning fresh raisin fruit and subtle oak aromas. It’s mouth-filling raisined fruit blends seamlessly with oak flavours that go on and on. Enjoy with a range of strong cheeses, dried fruit and fresh nuts, and dark chocolate. Alternatively, pair with an after dinner Italian espresso.
The non-vintage Muscat reveals a dark amber color in addition to gorgeous aromas of molasses, prunes, maple syrup, and toffee. Justifiably renowned for their tremendous dessert wines, Campbell’s four cuvees all performed impressively well, making one wonder if the price difference between the regular and rare offerings is really worth it. Certainly there is a bit more complexity and intensity to the Rare Tokay and Rare Muscat, which emerge from a solera system averaging 60 years of age. In any event, the tasting notes for all four wines are nearly identical to any of the great Australian fortifieds, such as Buller, Chambers Rosewood, etc. Wine Advocate #148 (Aug 2003) Robert Parker 95 points Drink 2002-2007
