    Winemaker's Notes:

    Produced from Muscat a Petit Grains, or Brown Muscat as it is more commonly known, the Grand Muscat is a deep amber color with a tawny rim. It displays a complex nose of spiced fruitcake, coffee and subtle rancio characters derived from time in oak. The complex palate shows luscious prunes, dried raisins and mature peaty spirits finishing with impressive persistence.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Grand level of Chambers' offerings may be the best compromise between expense, rarity and quality. This Grand Muscat boasts knockout scents of dried flowers, tea leaves and rancio, while the flavors are date-like in sweet intensity but accompanied by floral qualities and impeccable freshness.

    A very appealing balance between freshness and age, with touches of oak, bitter almonds, toffee and some lifted floral, musky notes; the palate is poised, weighty and shows a very pleasant burnt caramel character on the finish; delicious.

    Light amber. An intensely perfumed array of dried orchard and pit fruit aromas is complicated by exotic Indian spices and flowers, along with a note of cherry pit. Bitter orange peel and medicinal red fruit flavors are intensely sweet but don't come off as heavy or thick, with a lively cracked pepper note coming up on the back half. Pretty wild stuff, finishing with strong cut and clinging sweetness.

    A smooth, sweet Muscat, displaying a hint of orange peel and black tea to the walnut, cherry and spice notes. The finish finds a bead and keeps rolling beautifully, with focus and refinement. Drink now.

    With a medium brown color going slightly green at the edge, NV Rosewood Vineyards Grand Muscat has aromas of macerated sultanas, fig paste, baklava, toasted hazelnuts and coffee grounds plus a little mace. The palate is very sweet and very crisp with an unctuous silkiness that blankets the mouth and lingers a very long time.

    The Wine Advocate

    Blended from wines that are up to 70 years old in the Chambers' family cellars, this is a dark beauty with a seemingly everlasting flavor of honey and beeswax, along with an acidic sting that keeps the sweetness in check. It's complex and mouthwatering, to sip on its own or serve with an apple tart a la mode.
