Description

Campbells Rutherglen Muscat is the entry point into Campbells of Rutherglen’s superb range of Australian, sweet Muscat wines. It is a fortified Australian dessert wine made in using a solera system of fractional ageing, common in Sherry. Complex and elegant.

The Campbells of Rutherglen family winemaking heritage began in 1870 when Scotsman John Campbell made his first wine from the Bobbie Burns vineyard. Today there are around 64 hectares under vine and Youngest daughter and fifth generation Campbell, Julie, is the winemaker and custodian of the iconic Campbell’s style. Eldest daughter Jane oversees all elements of brand as the Managing Director. The family grows white varieties include Riesling, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Viognier and Trebbiano. Red varieties include Shiraz, the rare Durif, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Their world renowned Rutherglen Muscats are made from the variety Muscat à Petits Grains Rouge, and our Rutherglen Topaque from Muscadelle.

Rutherglen Muscat is a unique combination of the region’s climate, the grape variety, soils, the skills handed down through the generations and the wonderful old stocks reserved by past generations. The grapes for Campbells Rutherglen Muscat are 100% Muscat (Muscat à Petits Grains Rouge) are harvested late in the season to achieve optimum ripeness, ensuring maximum fruit flavour and a high degree of natural sweetness.

Only selected parcels of premium fruit are used to produce wines for this solera. The Muscat is fortified and enters into a “solera” system (a blend of a number of vintages from many past years) similar to those used in Sherry production. Wine can only be withdrawn from this solera when it matches exactly with the previous withdrawal thus ensuring the quality and consistency of style.

Campbells is one of the inaugural members of the Australian First Families of Wine (AFFW), a group of 10 like-minded and multi generational winemaking families.
