Reviews James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2019
96/100 "It has a great deal to say and it says it with great erudition. Fruit bread, toasted, slathered with fresh honey; glace cherries, studded through tea leaves and cinnamon tea cake; leather wood and raisins. Fresh. Stunning."

Joe Roberts, Rare By Nurture (The Inside View Of Rutherglen Rare Topaque And Muscat), www.1winedude.com, 2nd August 2012
In Rare terms, Pfeiffer’s offering is svelte and elegant, emphasizing the nutty, spicy and even dried herbal notes rather than the sticky-sweet citric fruits and fig. But there’s enough rum-like action to let you know you’re still in Rare-ville, here.

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 Rare Rutherglen Topaque is blended from our very best parcels, made only in the very best vintages, which are then matured in the best possible barrels.  This creates a superb wine of outstanding quality, with great depth and persistence of flavour.

The Pfeiffer Rare Rutherglen Topaque is a remarkable dark brown, black colour with olive green hues.  The nose is enticing, with strong coffee and chocolate characters, and excellent freshness.  The palate is rich, luscious and complex, with lots of chocolate and malt flavours.  It is a refined and stylish wine.  Superb!
