Campbells Tokay Rutherglen (375ML half-bottle)
Dessert from Victoria, Australia
Deep brilliant, burnished gold with a nose displaying toffee, honey and cold tea characters. The toffee and tea leaf characters predominate in the front palate with a bracing hint of spirit and mellowed oak on the finish.
"Bright, light golden-brown; classic mix of tea-leaf and butterscotch aromas lead into an elegant wine which dances in the mouth; has balance and length."
Australian Wine Companion
"Sweet, syrupy and spicy, with a strong current of brown sugar, coffee, tobacco and nutmeg running through the raisin and earth flavors. Drink now. 2,500 cases made."
"Campbells’ sweet fortified Muscats and Tokays are the product of a solera system and are essentially the same from year to year. Refer to Issue 173 for a more detailed description of these unique wines. They are all highly recommended."
The Wine Advocate
Delicious! The rich warm smooth toffee flavour with a touch of mellow raisin and caramel gives plenty of flavour to go with the sweetness. A lovely rich amber coulour. Great with dessert coffee and dark chocolate, nuts, and rich hard creamy or smokey cheeses or tangy blue cheeses.
Simply an excellent wine. This is my first experience with a tokay and it will definitely not be my last. Not only would I order this particular wine again, but I will definitely be looking to sample others of this type. This is a full bodied wine both in terms of texture and taste and is definitely worth savoring by the sip.
This tokay is the best I've ever tasted and it is the perfect dessert wine. It's rich, deep golden color is only surpassed by the rich depth of flavor. Deep notes of honey with a slight freshness rescuing it from any taint of the cloying. This wine is spectactular.
Nose of molasses, spice, raisin, honey, butterscotch. On the palate, maple syrup, spice, figs, honey, raisin, almond. Outstanding
I found this to be very sweet and buttery. Tastes like raisins and caramel. My daughter loved it. I Could only drink about 2 tablespoons and that was plenty for me. Takes getting used to, but I think the quality is very good.
has the confronting taste i enjoy in a desert wine.
Only complaint is the alcohol tinge on the finish. Great value though I would definitely recommend.
Took a chance and bought this and I was very happy with my choice. I have bought it again and will continue to buy it. My friends all loved it. It disappeared before I knew it.
really strong herbal aromas (celery root) with a richness in the taste (nutty, dried apricot). Great price point for a 'tokay'.
