Deep copper color. Dense scents of cherry, candied plum, dark toffee, mocha and marzipan. Chewy, dense and remarkably deep, with powerful fruit tones ranging from red berries to caramelized orange, with complicating toffee and burnt sugar tones. To call this a bargain is a serious understatement. (Incidentally, I also had the chance to re-try the 2002 Octavius Shiraz and scored it two points higher than last year, at 93. Fans of huge but focused shiraz should seek it out.)"

This wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1998

The production of premium fortified wine has long been part of the history at Yalumba. Founder Samuel Smith first made port back in the 1860s, and the South Australian Governor (1914-1920) Sir Henry L Galway selected his own personal "pipes" from the Yalumba bodega.

Today Yalumba maintains its reputation for its premium quality fortified wines by occasionally releasing very small parcels of Show Reserve stocks. This old Muscat was sourced from the Rutherglen and other Northern traditional areas of Victoria then blended and stored in French oak puncheons in our marble cellars at Angaston for eight years.

Made from the red and pink clones of the Muscat, a petite grains grape variety, this luscious dessert wine displays all the characteristics of this classic Australian wine style.

Color: Deep tawny red.

Bouquet: Classic rose petal and orange rind of the Muscat grape.

Palate: Full, luscious middle. Richly flavored, reminiscent of raisined fruits, nuts and spices. Sweet and soft yet unclaying finish. Incredible persistence of flavors.
