I recently (Jan 2010) opened a 1/2 bottle of the Muscat Museum reserve that I purchased 25 years ago. It was superb as a sipping dessert wine: smooth & flavorful. Better than any Port or Sherry I have ever had. I will buy again and hope that it is as excellent as the 25 year old bottle was.
This wine has a delightful raisin taste, granted it might be too sweet for some pallates i have found it just to my liking, particularly after very greasy plat forts like duck. Since it is rather sweet a cup will last for a long pleasant while. I had it with a cherry claffouti and the pairing was wonderful.
An intense, powerful, sweet experience. Raisins with honey and chocolate. Somewhat thick consistency. Drink slowly & savor.
This wine comes off as a cross between a 20 year tawny Porto and a well aged Sauterne, if you like either of those wines you will probably like this one. Great length and depth of fruit for only $20/375ml.
1st time i have bought this wine. very much a surprise coming from australia. raisin is the main flavor but not overwhelming because of the honey. also not spicy like some other dessert wines. good balance overall
not my type but quests liked it
lacks the harshness you need with desert wines like this. without it your pallet gets lost in the sweet taste.
This was my first "brown wine", Muscat experience. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but it just wasn't for my taste. It is overly sweet and syrupy. I drank it, or sipped rather, from a cordial glass. It should definitely be enjoyed in small amounts. The overpowering raisin flavor was hard to get over. I like raisins, but it was a bit like drinking a filtered raisin puree. It was drinkable, but I like lighter wines that aren't quite as sweet.
