"The dark amber-hued Classic Muscat is spectacular. Pure melted toffee, caramel, fig, honeyed coffee, brown sugar, raisin, and prune characteristics emerge from this full-throttle, unctuously-textured, magnificent sweet wine. A dense, opulent, viscous, full-bodied, moderately sweet personality provides a stunning mouthful of fortified red wine. It will drink well for a decade or more."

"Beautifully balanced, concentrated and persistent, capturing the depth of colour, the rancio complexity and nutty depth of age, while retaining the dried apricot and marmalade of youth."
Tyson Stelzer, WBM Dec 2012/Jan 2013

"A glass of this classic muscat(average age of 12 years) is all that's needed after dinner with coffee, in place of dessert. It's dark and enticing in the glass with depth, molasses, toffee, raisin and dried fig notes but a pretty floral lift, too. Rich and luscious on the palate and lip-smackingly good. These wines have already been aged so don't cellar them. Once opened, it will last a couple of months."
Jane Faulkner, Epicure, The Age, June 2012
