Region Rutherglen

Rutherglen in north-east Victoria is renowned for its unique fortified wine styles, particularly Muscat and Tokay (now called Topaque). During the late 1880s, Rutherglen enjoyed a substantial export market to the UK, but experienced harder economic conditions during the 20th century. The sheer quality of the fortified wine styles has kept the region going. The climate here is warm to hot, with a high degree of continentality and low relative humidity. Soils range Franceom gravels to red and sandy alluvial loams with the best vineyards located on red loamy soils. A four-tiered classification system for Rutherglen Muscat is now in place with styles showing progressive richness and concentration based on the average age of the material and levels of residual sugar.

Winery CHAMBERS ROSEWOOD WINERY

Langton’s Selections Chambers Rosewood Grand Muscat, Chambers Rosewood Rare Muscat The Chambers Rosewood was established in 1858. The original vineyard was planted by German born Anthony Ruche. Bill Chambers – one of the great characters of the Australian wine industry and longstanding wine show judge – has now passed on the winemaking baton to Roseworthy trained son Stephen Chambers. The overall offering of wines from this small wine producer is eclectic to say the least, from the bog standard flagon Sherries and cheap Rosewood non-vintage white to the sublime Chambers Rosewood Grand and Rare Muscats. These fortified elixirs are so extraordinary and so utterly ethereal that they go beyond great. The US market has recently discovered these non-vintage fortified wines creating upward pressure on prices. Chamber’s Rosewood wines have often featured in Langton’s sales but the results are erratic to say the least. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
