Where the Muscadelle is yellow-gold, this is pale russet red. The fortification spirit that is added after the wine has spent a mere 24 hours on skins before it is pressed introduces an edge to the Christmas cake, raisin, orange peel and spice that define new-born Rutherglen muscat. Truly great value. Read more

Few wines warm winter chills like Rutherglen Muscat. Ancient "liqueur" wines tended and blended in dusty cellars by generations of Rutherglen winemakers grab attention (and high prices), but young wines at the bottom of the range can be great value. This example from Chambers is tawny­ coloured with pure youthful muscat aromas of dried fruits. caramel, fig syrup, rosewater and lifted spirit. It's an uncomplicated essence of Rutherglen muscat, fruity, sweet and succulent with a thread of firmness drying the finish.

Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE: Brilliant clarity, deep orange-gold colour with strawberry highlights. AROMA: Fresh intense varietal aromas of Turkish Delight, musk, tea rose, vanilla, soft sweet spice, fruitcake, raisin, sultana, dried berries, and quince paste finishing with a subtle lift of spirit. PALATE: Rich and flavoursome layers of fruit, extending those found on the nose (raisin, musk, dried plum, quince, vanilla and spice). Youthful, luscious finish with gentle warmth from spirit.
