Winemaker Notes

"Muscat of astonishing silky richness…The world has no greater treat for the sweet tooth."
-Hugh Johnson, The World Atlas of Wine

Since the first grapes were harvested at Rutherglen in the 1850's, connoisseurs of fine fortified wines in Australia and the United Kingdom have recognized the Muscats of the region as wines of unsurpassed richness. Today, wine merchants, writers and consumers around the globe acclaim the fortified Muscats of Rutherglen as truly the world's richest wines.

The Muscats of Rutherglen are a unique product of the climate, soil, and skill of the region's winemakers. On the gently undulating country around the township of Rutherglen in North East Victoria, in the south east corner of the Australia, Brown Muscat (or Muscat a petit grains Rouge) grapes super ripen into raisined berries high in natural sugars. From these grapes the region's winemakers extract wines of extraordinary power, complexity and depth of flavor.

Critical Acclaim

RP 100
The Wine Advocate

V 95
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Deep amber. Powerfully scented bouquet displays raspberry preserves, cola, molasses, orange marmalade and brown sugar. Lush and deeply pitched in the mouth, offering concentrated pit fruit, toffee, candied fig and orange marmalade flavors and a deeper note of espresso. Clings impressively on the very long finish, which leaves notes of roasted coffee and candied red fruit behind.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Rich and viscous, this glass-staining, deep brown wine is loaded with notes of coffee, toffee and dried fruit. Pronounced rancio character marks the nose and lingers on the long, complex finish.

RL Buller
Andrew Buller was born in Rutherglen, the youngest of three sons. Graduating from Roseworthy College in 1981 he gained valuable work experience at Corbans in Gisborne, NZ and working harvests at the Leasingham Wine Company. His first success came early with a gold medal at the Rutherglen Wine show for his vintage port. Not letting early success go to his head he continued to gain valuable experience throughout the 1980's traveling Europe between vintages at Rutherglen. He has worked four vintages with Taylors in Portugal, the famous port producer, and one in Beaujolais in addition to visiting the wine regions of Spain, France and Germany.

Today Andrew is winemaker/manager of RL Buller & Son's Rutherglen vineyard and winery operation. He is a member of the Winemaker's of Rutherglen, the Rutherglen Muscat Network, the Rutherglen export group and the Vignerons Association.

Since 1921, the Buller family has produced heavyweight Muscats from their "Calliope" Vineyard - using the age-old techniques of basket presses and open fermenters, to make the Muscats they call their 'sleeping giants'. Found 4km East of Rutherglen this non irrigated is 32 Ha and is the source of the most premium Muscat's and Tokay's from RL Buller.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
