Campbells Rutherglen Muscat N.V.
“Crafted by families who have specialised in the genre for generations, these are generous wines, lingering and intense, with great depth of flavour.” Sarah Ahmed, thewinedetective.co.uk December 2010
Originally, from St Andrews in Fife, the first of the Campbell clan arrived in Rutherglen over 140 years ago with the intention of mining gold. When the ‘Bobbie Burns’ seam was exhausted, the family stayed on, turning their hands first to sheep farming before diversifying into viticulture. Today fourth generation brothers, Colin and Malcolm Campbell, have re-established the reputation of these once legendary fortified Muscat wines. Their Rutherglen Muscat is aged in a solera system for an average of 5 years.
Bright amber gold with copper tints, brimming with fresh raisin fruit backed by subtle oak characters. Luscious mouthfilling raisined fruit combine with the oak flavours to produce a wine of great length.
Grape: 100% Muscat
