    Winemaker's Notes:

    Since the first grapes were harvested at Rutherglen in the 1850's, connoisseurs of fine fortified wines in Australia and the United Kingdom have recognized the Muscats of the region as wines of unsurpassed richness. Today, wine merchants, writers and consumers around the globe acclaim the fortified Muscats of Rutherglen as truly the world's richest wines.

    The Muscats of Rutherglen are a unique product of the climate, soil, and skill of the region's winemakers. On the gently undulating country around the township of Rutherglen in North East Victoria, in the south east corner of the Australia, Brown Muscat (or Muscat a petit grains Rouge) grapes super ripen into raisined berries high in natural sugars. From these grapes the region's winemakers extract wines of extraordinary power, complexity and depth of flavor.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Thick, dark brown and looking as much like molasses as wine, Buller's Calliope Rare Tokay has a soy-like meatiness to it, a leathery note that adds complexity to its notes of treacle and rancio. Almost too sweet and syrupy, with an endless finish.
