Dark amber brown color. PNP, drank 1 glass over an hour. The nose is pleasant with lots of raisin and fig, molasses, cashew, orange peel. The palate starts off well, hitting you with intense flavors of raisin, fig, creamy texture, maple syrup, chocolate covered raisins, orange, orange peel; but this fairly quickly seems syrupy and very sweet. A little goes a long way for me. Enjoyable in smaller quantities.
Great value for a sweet wine. Tawny-like as others have mentioned. Could use more acidity to avoid being cloying, and there were some faint medicinal/cough syrup notes on the finish I didnt particularly care for.
Lots of sweet, nutty, coffee, caramel goodness to offer.
Weekly tasting group; Mature New World wines: There are several Yalumba Muscat Museum Reserve wines in Cellartracker and to be honest I don’t know which one to chose. This one or the red one…? The wine was dark and there is red muscat/moscatel. In the bouquet there is coffee, currants, caramel and candy flavors which combine coffee and caramel. Same on the palate. Someone in the tasting group mentioned coughing syrup, which I can understand. Special, but overall I like it for what it is. Definitely nice with a chocolate desert. (I reported this to Andrew and he merged the red and white. Thanks!)
