Yalumba Museum Reserve Muscat
|Region||Australia, Victoria, Rutherglen|
Yalumba's Muscat includes some lots from outside Rutherglen, but it's still an excellent example of fortified Muscat, featuring hints of caramelized cherries and a sweet, complex mélange of caramel, toffee and chocolate balanced by citrusy freshness.
Sweet, bordering on syrupy, but nicely held in check by sufficient acidity, allowing the coffee, sassafras, vanilla and clotted cream flavors to glide effortlessly through the expressive finish. Drink now.
Pale tawny-brown with a green rim, the NV Museum Release Muscat is full of raisins and dates on the nose; the aromatics are very perfumed, spicy and lifted, with some praline notes in the background. This Muscat is so sweet and rich, with notes of liquid sultanas, as well as concentration, length and spice on the palate.
