Reviews Jane Faulkner, The Age Life & Style - The Good Life Food & Wine, 31st August 2013
"Fortifieds are still the jewel in the Australian wine crown because their complexity and deliciousness are second to none and they are ridiculously low in price. This Pfeiffer Muscat is a fresher style with an average age of about five years. It's bright amber in colour with just a tinge of orange. It has a heady aroma of muscat fruit plus raisins, fruitcake, burnt toffee and zest. While rich and luscious, it doesn't appear overly sweet. If you want a special gift, check out the older Muscats such as those labelled Rare or Grand."

“A rich and luscious style with abundant raisin, burnt toffee and Christmas pudding flavours, the finish lifted by a cut of rancio.”

"Some development showing as the red hues start changing to tawny/orange; raisin fruit is in abundance. Many things can be done with a wine such as this."

“Strong varietal characters of raisins; sweet and luscious, although not especially complex.”

Winemakers Comments Each year Muscat grapes are havested at high sugar levels.  This wine is then transferred into barrels and casks of different volumes (generally for anything between 2 and 5 years for this Rutherglen classification).  These parcels are then blended to produce youthful, fresh wines some some complexity and concentrated flavours.

The Pfeiffer Rutherglen Muscat is a fine example of this classifiction and displays floral and raisin fruit and a rich, luscious palate.
