Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Mid-reddish brown to amber at the rim. Aromatic raisiny/floral scents/hint of spirit. Initial sweetness and raisiny flavours linger to reveal complex hints of honey and lemons. Some rancio character. Underlying structure of tannin and well-integrated spirit. Finish is long and the honeyed flavours return and linger.

Muscat can be an interesting match for a range of fruit desserts and puddings; also good with soft, ripe blue cheeses and nuts.

Ready for immediate consumption.

Critical Acclaim

"R.L. Buller & Son was founded in 1921 by the grandfather of Andrew Buller, the current winemaker. The winery remains one of the benchmarks in the production of fortified sweet wines from the warm terroir of Rutherglen. "
91 Points

"Bullers entry-level Muscat blend sourced from inside and outside Rutherglen itself is a terrific value. It's perfumed yet full bodied and rich, with sweet notes of golden raisins and dried figs, as well as darker hints of dates and molasses. "
91 Points

"Green-tinged brown color. Intensely perfumed bouquet shows a strong spicy character and scents of orange peel, clove, nutmeg and brown sugar. Deeply sweet but not excessively thick, avoiding any syrupy character. Zesty orange peel and spices on the palate, with sweeter pit fruit and caramel notes on the back end. Impressively vibrant for a fortified wine, with strong finishing spiciness and a hint of bitter orange."
91 Points

"Bright and sweet, with aromatic spices and prune flavors, picking up a nice hint of dried cherry and strawberry as the finish lingers. Drink now. 5,000 cases made."

Absolutely stellar! Very rich and complex. Smoky/earthy gives way quickly to toffee/caramel and other rich flavors. What a treat! One of the best Muscats we've tasted.

I'm sorry but I will not join the bandwagon as concerned this rather syrupy single note sticky. Please, don't get me wrong. I am a great lover of port, Madeira, and a variety of other sweet and or fortified wines. I simply think that this is a poor example. It is terribly heavy, and is overwhelmed by an almost molasses like character. I think it interesting to note that Wine Enthusiast describes the wine as full-bodied with darker hints of dates and molasses, while Wine Spectator describes it as bright and sweet. Well, I can at least agree with the molasses comment.
