Campbells Merchant Prince Rare Rutherglen Muscat 375ml


Wine and Winery Information

Campbells Merchant Prince Muscat

This classifi cation takes the fl avour of Rutherglen Muscat to still a higher plane of development, displaying a new level of intensity, depth and concentration of fl avour, mature rancio characters, and a complexity which imparts layers of texture and fl avour. The Muscats of Rutherglen are considered the “World’s Richest Wines” and bear a mark of authenticity – an oval logotype with a stylised “R” – which is only applied to the wines drawn from the great Muscat vineyards of the region. The “Muscat of Rutherglen” trademark assures the highest quality of wine exclusively sourced from the Rutherglen Wine Region.

“Campbells’ ‘house style’ is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of raisin fruit fl avours.” Colin Campbell

Technical Details

Growing Region: Rutherglen, Victoria

Grape Variety: Muscat a Petit Grains Rouge (also known as Rutherglen Brown Muscat). All fruit from Campbells own Rutherglen vineyards

Alcohol: 18%

Winemaking: Fruit is left to ripen on the vine until as late as possible to ensure the necessary high degree of lusciousness. Juice is fermented for only a very short time before being fortifi ed with neutral spirit and stored in oak to mature. Only selected parcels of premium fruit are used to produce wines for this solera.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Rich, deep brown

Bouquet: Complex raisined fruit characters, coffee bean, dark chocolate and a distinct rancio lift.

Palate: An incredible depth of luscious raisined fruit fl oods the front palate. Walnut, dark chocolate, ground coffee bean, vanilla and nutty rancio characters add complexity, before an incredibly long, drawn out fi nish.

Service: Excellent with strong cheeses, plum pudding or as an after dinner drink with coff ee.

Cellaring: Blended for optimum fl avour and balance prior to bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be consumed soon after opening.

Winemaker: Colin Campbell
