Yalumba "Museum Reserve" Antique Tawny (375ml)

SKU #1026670 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Non-Vintage Museum Reserve Antique Tawny is medium amber-colored with aromas of ginger, figs and dates. Intense, ripe, and very sweet, it will finish off your meal in style.  (12/ 2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Dark and smoky, sweet but not syrupy, this features coffee, chocolate, walnut and hazelnut flavors that linger effortlessly. Touriga, Muscadelle, Tinta Molle, Tinta Cão, Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now.  (4/ 2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Burnt orange with a yellow rim. Aromas of spices, grilled nuts, orange peel and musky earth evoke Tokaji. Firm and dry-edged in the mouth, with focused apricot pit and walnut flavors. The long, mineral-inflected finish is dry and bracing.  (11/ 2005)

For the price this is a 5* and I even say 4 - 4.5 price notwithstanding. Very complex Tawny with figs, dates, and a certain nuttiness. The flavors vary from fore and mid palate to the finish. Thank you to whoever it was at KL that recommended this to me while in the store.
Drink from 2012 to 2016

Country:

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great Region are in the southeastern area of the continent, with the Barossa Valley, Claire Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia, the Yarra Yarra Velley and Pyrenees in Victoria and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the land Down Under. While many equate Aussie wines with "value", there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
