This wine has been described in glowing terms as ‘the unsung hero of north-east Victoria’. The fortified Tokays of the north-east of Victoria have become renowned the world over for their richness and depth of flavour.
Vineyard Region: Northern Victoria
Vintage: NV
Color: This wine displays the rich tawny colour and slight green hue we would expect from a quality Tokay.
Aroma: A wonderfully complex nose with aromas of caramel, raisins, spicy fruit cake and tea leaf.
Palate: On the palate this luscious wine displays intense flavours of rich treacly fruit and spice with nutty rancio flavours that are balanced by a mouth filling, lingering finish. The wine also possesses a freshness that comes from the youthful components in the blend, while the older material gives it a firm dryness.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 17%
Growing Conditions: The Muscadelle grapes used to make this wine were grown throughout vineyards in Victoria including just over 50% from our Mystic Park Vineyard near Swan Hill.
Winemaker: Geoff Alexander
Winemaking Notes: The fruit is harvested late when ripe and raisined and then fortified with grape spirit before too much sugar has fermented. The wine is then aged in a combination of predominantly large old oak barrels and some small oak barrels, which adds to the complexity of the flavour. A modification of the ancient Spanish Solera system is used to age and blend the wine, ensuring rich, older material is mixed with both medium aged and younger material. This system not only preserves the quality and characters of the wine over the years, but also keeps it fresh and balanced. The wine in this blend ranges from 8 to 15 years with the average age being 12. It has an alcohol of 17.0%, a pH of 3.72 and an acid level of 4.9 g/L.
