The Grand Muscat reveals orange marmalade notes. It is an incredibly unctuous, sweet, thick wine, but, like its siblings, it is neither heavy nor cloying because of good underlying acidity. This singular treasure from Australia should not be missed!
Wine Spectator 95/100
Incredibly intense, rich and smoky, with black cherry, clove, cola and anise flavors in profusion. Long and redolent of tar and smoke on the sweet finish.
Stephen Tanzer 95/100
Pale amber. Dense aromas of toffeed cherry and plum, with accents of cinnamon, mace, caramel and white pepper. Quite spicy in the mouth, with vibrant flavors of bitter orange, plum liqueur, maple, caramelized nuts and prune. Expansive, very long and almost magically lively, with uncanny lift to the wild array of flavors, especially raspberry compote and kirsch.
James Halliday 94/100
Full olive-brown; ultra-complex aromas, with a piercing strand of rancio; layer upon layer of flavour, balanced and integrated, no one flavour is dominant.

Wine & Spirits 90/100
As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. Complex and compelling, this wine uses its age and sweetness to great effect. The aroma is dense, layering scents of figs, dates, orange peel and salted nuts. The alcohol seems to extend the wine's sweetness and intensity. If it's too much to take on its own, pour it over vanilla ice cream
