Yalumba "Antique Rare" Museum Reserve 50-Year Tawny Port New South Wales (375ml)

SKU #1189104 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium brown colored with a slightly green rim, the NV Museum Reserve 50 years Old Tawny Port presents a fragrant earthy character on the nose with notes of earth, old barn planks and underbrush over roasted brazil nuts, praline, treacle, baklava, and cassia. Not overly sweet and with very crisp acid it has lots of complex layers, finishing long and nutty. Love it. It’s designed to drink now. (LPB)  (12/2010)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep amber color. A wild, exotically perfumed bouquet exudes toffee, orange peel, caramel, toasted nuts and cherry pit, with a spicy topnote. Sweet, penetrating and impressively lithe for its sweetness, offering intense toffeed apple, fig paste and caramel flavors along with a touch of gingerbread. Closes with excellent clarity and length, leaving smoke, toffee and cinnamon notes behind.  (8/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Dark and complex, sweet and tangy, with an open texture framing the grapefruit-tinged cherry, black coffee, walnut and dusky spice flavors. Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Muscadelle. Drink now.  (8/2014)

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 wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley 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 and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. 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.
