This classification is the foundation of the style; displaying the fresh raisin aromas, rich fruit, clean spirit and great length of flavour on the palate, which are the mark of all the Muscats of Rutherglen. 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.

Caramel and Turkish delight aromas: raisiny muscat flavours on the palate.Not too sweet but beautifully balanced, this is a superb sipper with brandied figs topped with mascarpone.Huon Hooke, The Age (DEC/2006)
A complex and very luscious wine, which has some spicy elements not unlike tokay adding interest. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
‘A wonderful Rutherglen Sticky style, richly flavoured with raisin and nut notes. A bit like a wonderful liquid fruit cake and would be a terrific match with a slice. When the world discovers these, the prices will sky rocket. Get in now!’Mike Frost The Courier Mail (AUG/2008)
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright amber gold with copper tints.
Fresh raisin fruit backed by subtle oak characters.
Luscious mouthfilling raisined fruit combine with the oak flavours to produce a wine of great length.
Blended for optimum flavour and balance at the time of bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening.
Excellent chilled as an aperitif or with strong cheeses, plum pudding or after dinner with freshly brewed coffee.
