Reviews James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2019
96/100 "A perfect example of rancio characters being put to good use. This has intensity, length, light and shade, colour and dramatic movement. Fresh, candied notes are the perfect complement to the wine's roasted, leathery, malty depths. And then those rancio notes help to both lift and lengthen."

Winemakers Comments Muscadelle grapes are always harvested at the end of the season, ensuring high sugar levels for the production of Topaque wines.  The grapes are crushed into static fermenters, to undergo a cold soak for up to 3 days.  Fermentation is commenced on skins (only about 1%v/v) before the grapes are pressed into stainless steel tanks and fortified using a neutral grape spirit, leaving a sweet wine of around 17.5% v/v. 

After fortification, the Topaque wines are clarified, then transferred into barrels and casks of different volumes for several years (anything between three and thirty).  Most batches are kept separate, however some batches are blended for the maturation process.  It is this maturation process that concentrates the wines and produces the rich, complex flavours.  Our Pfeiffer Grand Rutherglen Topaque is blended from some of our oldest and most valued parcels to give a rich and decadent wine.

The Pfeiffer Grand Rutherglen Topaque displays a complex nose, showing maturity, with flavours of malt, coffee and spiced honey.  The palate is luscious and intense, with wonderful texture and delicious toffee and malt like flavours.  The wine displays lovely aged character, but is still wonderfully fresh.
