Winemaker Notes

The "Rare" designation is used for material dating back over 100 years. As this is not a scientific process it is not possible to put a definitive age on the wine but one taste will tell you it is not from this century.

While these wines are seen as after dinner drinks, try serving them as anaperitif. And a bottle, once opened, will keep for some months without deteriorating, providing it is recorked after each serving.

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Rosewood Vineyards Rare Muscadelle has a deep brown color with a hint of green in the rim. The nose has a complex, oxidative, almost oloroso character giving notes of roasted walnuts, dark chocolate, burnt coffee and toffee. The palate is so crisp in acidity that the unbelievable level of sweetness and viscosity is infinitely drinkable. Layer upon layer of spice and nut flavors develop into the very long finish.
WE 97
Wine Enthusiast
Not to be confused with Muscat, Muscadelle is an entirely different variety with a long history in Australian fortified wines. This mocha-hued beauty, made from a solera that includes over 100-year-old wine, has a nose you could sink into like a favorite armchair. Chocolate, raisins, dried figs, vanilla bean and nuts are inviting and comforting. The luxurious palate is rich and indulgent but still fresh, long and lingering. This is a perfect pairing with soft salty cheeses and nutty, dried fruit desserts.
W&S 95
Wine & Spirits
As old as the Rare Muscat (recommended above), this is powerfully concentrated but not as super dense. It keeps juicing up with flavors, layering plum pudding, complex mineral notes, smoke and the scent of old leather. The flavors seem to last for minutes after each sip, the complexity of the scent continually shifting shape even long after the liquid is gone.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Harmonious, with brown sugar, caramel and apricot flavors balanced by a freshness that complements the thick body. Black tea, spice and cocoa notes linger. Drink now.

Chambers Rosewood Winery Image

Fringed by the beautiful Alpine Region and the Murry River, Chambers Rosewood Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery nestled on the edge of the charming town of Rutherglen. Rutherglen is a hamlet in North East Victoria, renowned for its wine-growing terroirs. The company is known worldwide for its Muscat and Muscadelle grapes and flagship fortified wines. Today, the winery delivers both top-notch bottled and bulk wines on both national and international fronts.

Since establishment in 1858 in Victoria's famed Rutherglen region, winemaking duties at Chambers Rosewood have been handed down through six generations. Relinquished in 2001 by Bill Chambers, one of Australia's most respected wine personalities, the aging and blending practices that shape these inimitable fortified wines are now entrusted with son Stephen. Recognized the world over for their complexity, intensity and balance, Chambers' Rare Muscats and Muscadelles are a national treasure; wines expertly blended from unctuous material that has matured quietly in the family cellars for more than ninety years.

Stephen collects berries for his wines from century-old vines, enriched with appropriate flavors and aromas, along with some newer young vines. He grows a wide range of varieties, Muscat and Muscadelle being at the forefront. Many other varieties include fruity Palomino, Roussanne, Riesling, Traminer, and Shiraz. The estate also uses the unique and rare Gouais grape, a parent of Chardonnay and Riesling, along with top-quality Tempranillo, Durif, Mondeuse, and Cinsault (Blue Imperial) to produce luscious wines. In the vineyards, they nurture precious vines as old as 110 years.
