100pts, Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate, #148 The Calliope Rare Muscat boasts a deep, dark amber color as well as layers of flavor and constantly changing aromatics of brown sugar, fig, molasses, and Lord knows what else. It is an extraordinary beverage.

95 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - Sept 2011
Deep amber. Powerfully scented bouquet displays raspberry preserves, cola, molasses, orange marmalade and brown sugar. Lush and deeply pitched in the mouth, offering concentrated pit fruit, toffee, candied fig and orange marmalade flavors and a deeper note of espresso. Clings impressively on the very long finish, which leaves notes of roasted coffee and candied red fruit behind.

Trophy Winner, "Best Fortified Wine" at the 1999 Sydney International Wine Competition



Winemaker Notes

Winemaker: Andrew Buller
Rutherglen Muscat has been acclaimed by wine lovers all over the world as a unique Australian style. American guru, Robert Parker, described it as "one of the world's great dessert wines".
Bullers' Calliope Rare Liqueur Muscat represents the very best quality that three generations of winemakers can produce. Calliope Muscat includes some very old material dating back over 55 years and old exceptional vintages are used in the blend.
Cellaring recommendations: This wine is aged in cask at the winery prior to bottling and will not improve with further cellaring.
Fruit: Rutherglen Brown Muscat
