Reviews James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2019
94/100 "Again the colour is stunning. Vividly inviting. It tastes of cherry syrup and raisins, sweet spices and malt. It's as fluid as it is delicious. And it's long."

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2018
94/100 "Average age 11-12 years. Very little difference in hue to that of the entry point Rutherglen Muscat, but greater focus and intensity to the raisin/plum pudding fruit; excellent rancio and cut to the long finish."

Lisa Johnston, The Pfeiffer's Sticky Rutherglen Story, www.enobytes.com, 3rd December 2013
"There is a deeper quality to this wine with an extra five years age on average. This extra time gives additional complexity with some fragrant tea notes to the nose and toffee and fig flavours. It is fresh and luscious and sweet but not cloying at around 260 grammes/Litre of residual sugar. A sticky toffee pudding kind of dessert."

You can pick a wine-lover's house on Christmas Eve. It's got a plate of super-delicious Tuscan cantucci almond bikkies set out beside a big glass of vin santo, maybe a Castello di Ama or Castellani. Or maybe a shortbread and a wee dram, or a Rutherglen muscat and a florentine. Does that sound too obsessive? If it doesn't, here are a few little vinous somethings to put under the tree for the wine lover in your life…Grandfather: Pfeiffer Classic Rutherglen Muscat ($29). Classic in name and nature; clean, fresh, dried fruits, raisin, toffee, silky, supple

93/100 Fresh raisin. Is that a contradiction in taste? If so, it’s there in the complex flavours of this wine, playing at several different octaves at once. The layers of golden raisin, prune, orange marmalade and nut meat resonate from treble to bass, a generous flavour that combines complexity with a high yum factor. Delicious satisfaction.

92/100 Rutherglen muscats are fortified wines distinctive, luscious and sublime. This has a stunning green tinged tawny colour with a heady aroma full of cream, toffee and burnt orange. Add brandy snaps to this array and you have the palate. Sweet but not too sticky.

Winemakers Comments Each year Muscat grapes are harvested at high sugar levels.  This wine is then transferred into barrels and casks of different volumes for several years (anything between 5 and 50 years).  These parcels of varying ages are then blended together prior to bottling, to create the perfect balanced wine, for drinking now.  This Muscat is a wonderful example of Rutherglen Classic Muscat.

An aromatic bouquet of florals and raisins follows on to the rich and luscious palate, lingering long after the wine has been enjoyed.  Muscat is regarded as the world''s RICHEST wine.
