Medium garnet-tawny with orange-red tints. Sweet scents with distinct tawny character. Sweet fruit flavors combined with developed porty characters. Hints of rancio. Well-integrated spirit. Clean fresh finish.
Enjoy with desserts like bittersweet Belgian chocolate, figs, chocolate mousse cake, fine mild cheeses and fresh fruit, pecan pie, dried fruits and nuts.
"These blends represent the newest bottled offerings from this Rutherglen producer, an area that produces spectacular fortifieds, especially the Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle). Their freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed. The real values are the less expensive cuvees generally produced from 5- to 6-year-old solera systems... The Victoria Tawny exhibits a medium garnet color in addition to sweet, unctuous strawberry and cherry fruit. It is a blend of four grapes, Carina, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, and Shiraz."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright red. Cherry and gingerbread aromas are complicated by floral and toffee accents. Fresh and clean in the mouth for a sweet wine, with nicely integrated acids lifting the bright red berry and cherry flavors. Shows very good intensity on the long, sweet finish.
