This classification is the foundation of the style; displaying fresh fruit aromas, rich fruit on the palate, clean spirit and great length of flavour, which are the mark of all the Muscats of Rutherglen. The Muscats of Rutherglen are considered the “World’s Richest Wines” and bear a mark of authenticity – an oval logotype with a stylised “R” – which is only applied to the wines drawn from the great Muscat vineyards of the region. The “Muscat of Rutherglen” trademark assures the highest quality of wine exclusively sourced from the Rutherglen Wine Region. Campbell’s ‘house style’ is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of fruit flavour while finishing clean and dry. - Colin Campbell COLOUR Bright amber gold with copper tints. BOUQUET Fresh raisin fruit backed by subtle oak characters. PALATE Luscious mouthfilling raisined fruit combine with the oak flavours to produce a wine of great length. CELLARING AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS Blended through our solera for optimum flavour and balance, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening. Excellent chilled as an aperitif or with strong cheeses, plum pudding or after dinner with freshly brewed coffee.
Each season grapes are picked after prolonged ripening to ensure maximum sugar levels and raisin character. The resultant wine is blended into our soleras to maintain a consistent house style when combined with wines from previous vintages. This wine contains portions from a number of vintages over several years.
The grapes are left until late in the season to achieve optimum ripeness, ensuring maximum fruit flavor and a high degree of natural sweetness. Selected parcels of the finished wine are then added to the Rutherglen Muscat solera which is a blend of a number of vintages from many past years. Wine can only be withdrawn from this solera when it matches exactly with the previous withdrawal thus ensuring the quality and consistency of style.
