NV Stanton & Killeen: Classic Rutherglen Muscat

Post by Alex Bridgeman » 12:36 Thu 10 Dec 2020

Average age of the wines in the blend is 12 years.

Deep polished rosewood in colour, 90% opaque. Quite restrained on the nose with the fragrant and perfumed Turkish Delight, sweet but floral. Soft and smooth entry, thick with gentle muscvado sugar and a distinct Christmas Pudding complexity. Rich and perfumed aftertaste with hints of black coffee and maple syrup. A little flash of acidity and a very suprising dryness. Great chewy finish, just like sucking on a crystallised raisin. 92/100. Drunk 10-Dec-20.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
