Critical Acclaim

SP94 Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2002

"A deep, burnished brown color and explosive aromas mark this as a serious dessert wine, and the rich coffee, cream, cherry, caramel and exotic spice flavors roll across the palate on a silky texture." (94 pts.)

RP100 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 23rd Aug 2003

"Rutherglen is ground zero for one of Australia’s great treasures, old fortified Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle), and Buller’s offerings are brilliant examples of these wines. The Calliope Rare Muscat boasts a deep, dark amber color as well as layers of flavor and constantly changing aromatics of brown sugar, fig, molasses, and Lord knows what else. It is an extraordinary beverage. These Australian treasures are fabulous to drink at the end of a meal. Moreover, once opened, they will hold for several weeks, sometimes longer." (100 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Jun 2010

"Giving aromas of dark brown sugar, black strap molasses, licorice and preserved walnuts, the deeply brown colored NV Calliope Rare Muscat is again incredibly sweet and viscous with a good amount of acid to balance and is decadently rich and nutty/spicy in the very long finish. All these vintage blended fortified wines are bottled to drink now and though are stable enough to hold, they are not designed to improve with cellaring." (95 pts.)

WE94 Wine Enthusiast 2/28/2011

"Rich and viscous, this glass-staining, deep brown wine is loaded with notes of coffee, toffee and dried fruit. Pronounced rancio character marks the nose and lingers on the long, complex finish." (94 pts.)

WE98 Wine Enthusiast 12/15/2007

"This is dark, almost black in color at the center, with greening evident at the rim. Syrupy, intense aromas of coffee and dark chocolate make an immediate impact on the nose, followed by syrupy, intense flavors of coffee and molasses. There’s mind-boggling concentration here, but just enough acidity to provide a sense of balance. Still, it’s hard to imagine drinking more than a couple of ounces of this at a time." (98 pts.)

Australia

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.
