The dark-amber-hued Premium Fine Tokay offers sumptuous notes of spice box, Christmas pudding, figs, brown sugar, and molasses. This blend represents the newest bottled offerings from this Rutherglen producer, an area that produces spectacular fortifieds, especially the Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle). Its freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed.

This wine is nearly flawless. Fabulously perfumed as well as unctuously textured, it offers incredible notes of prunes, raisins, honey, molasses, roasted nuts, etc., etc. Australia continues to be a treasure trove for fortified, after-dinner wines. Once bottled, they do not change, and often age up to a decade where well stored. After opening, most will last for a week. This is one of the top wine discoveries of this year’s tastings. Many consumers are going to be overjoyed with this offering.

The N.V. Fine Tokay is amber colored with flavors of honey, fig, citrus fruits, and orange marmalade. It is well balanced and has a long, pure finish.

A bargain among Down Under fortifieds, Buller’s Victorian blended Tokay features wonderfully complex notes of tea, spice and citrus atop lush caramel-like sweetness. It’s silky and balanced, with a long, citrusy finish.

The medium garnet-colored non-vintage Premium Fine Tawny is a knock-out, revealing smoky, spicy, nutty notes intermixed with caramel and marmalade characteristics. These Australian treasures are fabulous to drink at the end of a meal. Moreover, once opened, they will hold for several weeks, sometimes longer.

Unctuously sweet, rich in texture and long, playing out its crème brûlée, orange peel and evanescent remnants of cherry fruit as the wine coats the mouth luxuriantly.

Buller’s top wines are from Rutherglen, but this entry-level Tokay carries the broader Victoria GI. There’s a blast of bergamot upfront, the penetrating citrus notes layered over tea leaves and caramel flavors. Viscous and mouthcoating, it finishes long and citrusy-sweet.

Bright orange-hued brown. Pungent aromas of apricot and peach pit, mint, cherry and dried rose. Sappy, spicy cherry and pit fruit flavors are lifted by a zesty spice note and complicated by suggestions of succulent herbs. The minty quality resonates on the long, slightly sticky finish.

Green-tinged copper. Brown sugar, molasses, blond tobacco, toffee and brown butter on the nose. Rich and velvety, with round, creamy flavors of toffee, crème brûlée, mocha and lightly roasted coffee. Finishes rich and supple.

Beginning the fortifieds, the NV Fine Old Tokay provides a great value taste of this style. Yielding a pale amber color, the aromas are of ripe figs, dried apricots, toffee, manuka honey and a whiff of treacle. It’s very sweet in the mouth, yet a high backbone of acid provides freshness for balance that lasts through the long finish.
