Stanton & Killeen Rare Muscat Non Vintage

An appearance of deep brown with an olive tinge. The aromas are reminiscent of Christmas pudding, walnut and subtle chocolate. Fresh fruit cake with intense raisins are balanced with coffee beans from wood maturation. It has a dry and savoury finish with distinct rancio characters. "If a parcel of fruit is regarded as particularly special, it will be kept apart after fortification and may eventually graduate to the Grand or Rare solera system. These wines do not come about every year, and are a product of exceptional vintages, combining depth of fruit with complexity of age. We draw off small quantities from our oldest collection of barrels and then fill these barrels with the next oldest collection. The youngest collection is only occasionally refilled, with wines that have already undergone many years of ageing and careful selection. The final blend is a combination of rich and intense parcels to create a wonderfully layered wine, often involving many generations of winemaking patience. This wine has already been matured in barrels. Bottled in small amounts to achieve maximum freshness, we recommend consuming this wine within two years of purchase, as no further ageing will occur in the bottle. It will keep for some months once opened, although we recommend drinking within four weeks so you can enjoy the luscious freshness that is a hallmark of Rutherglens unique fortified wines." Stanton and Killeen The history of Stanton & Killeen spans seven generations and began when Rutherglen was a fledgling gold mining town in the 1870s. Today, mother-daughter team, Wendy and Natasha Killeen, are looking to the future by combing the best features of the old and the new, continuing the tradition of making award-winning fortifieds and focusing on producing distinctive quality table wine. Winemaker, Andrew Drumm, continues to develop the modified solera system, decades old, which produces some of Rutherglen's most famous muscats, topaques and tawnies.
