      Winemaker Notes

      In the warm fall climate the grapes ripen and shrivel on the vines producingnatural sugar levels in the range of 16.7 - 20 degrees Baume. The raisined grapesare then picked, crushed and partially fermented before being fortified and thensubjected to a wood aging program loosely resembling a solera system that lasts(in some cases) for over 100 years.

      A blend of six to ten-year-old Muscadelle. This is a rich, viscous wine displayingcharacters of honeyed spice, marmalade and tealeaf. Although luscious, thepalate is not cloying. It finishes with a tight acidity and lingering nuttiness.While these wines are seen as after dinner drinks, try serving them as an aperitif.And a bottle, once opened, will keep for some months without deteriorating,providing it is recorked after each serving.

      Golden orange hue; a truly perfect expression of young muscadelle: Callard & Bowser toffee, cold tea, honey, spices of every kind, nuts and toffee, leaving the mouth fresh. The value is quite extraordinary.

      Full-bodied and sweet, this amber-hued fortified is one of the entry points into the Chambers universe. Dried figs and soy sauce mark the nose, while the flavors combine hints of mushrooms, roasted meat and maple syrup. The finish is long, with just a hint of scorched sugar.

      Located in the warm and dry northeastern corner of the state of Victoria, bordering the southern side of the Murray River, the Rutherglen region bears a long history of fortified wine production.

      Rutherglen's main variety, Muscat blanc à Petits Grains (also known as Brown Muscat or Muscat à Petit Grains Rouge for its often pink- or red-tinged berries) flourishes in the region’s deep, moisture retaining, alluvial red loam soils. To make the distinguished and aptly named fortified, "Rutherglen," these Muscat grapes are harvested after left to semi-raisin on the vine. Fermentation only reaches a few degrees alcohol before the juice is fortified with grape spirit and aged in a barrel system resembling a cross between a Sherry solera and a Madeira estufagem. Rutherglen wines boast great concentration and fine aromas hinting at orange flowers and spice, and are capable of astounding quality.

      The Rutherglen region grows second grape, called Muscadelle (confusingly unrelated to any Muscat clone), which also produces a quality fortified wine. Historically Australians called the grape “Tokay” and believed it to have Hungarian ancestry but when the French ampelographer, Paul Truel, identified it as Muscadelle in 1976, the name had to be changed. Today varietal wines made from Muscadelle can be called, “Topaque.”

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
