The Seppelt DP 63 Grand Rutherglen Muscat is sourced from premium parcels of extremely ripe fruit and aged in small oak casks to create a wine of incredible richness, complexity and depth of flavour with a long, lingering finish. The essence of Rutherglen Muscat and an ideal accompaniment to fruit-based desserts. The recipient of 5 Trophies and 24 Gold Medals in Australian Wine Shows since 1990.

Tasting Notes

An outstanding aged Muscat. Very deep onion brown and deep sienna colour with olive green hue. Superb nose with aged spirit lift over layers of raisins, dried figs, honey and toffee. The palate flavours are concentrated with luscious mouthfeel and creamy texture. Intense flavours of honey, raisins and spice fill the mouth over a layer of raisin cake and marmalade. Outstanding length and concentration. Exceptionally long honey and marmalade aftertaste. 

 

History

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
Australia's most awarded maker of sparkling wine
Winner - Jimmy Watson Trophy 1992, 1972, 1965

"Seppelt has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking for over 160 years. From its humble beginnings in 1851, when Joseph Seppelt established Seppeltsfield in the Barossa, to today: renowned for producing elegant shiraz, table and sparkling wines from an exceptional collection of Victorian vineyards. 

Through a tradition of expert winemaking and a passion for innovation, Seppelt has paved the way in progressive cool climate style wines; producing Australia’s first sparkling wine, as well as pioneering the iconic sparkling shiraz." - Seppelt

"Seppelt once had dual, very different, claims to fame. The first was as Australia's foremost producer of both white and red sparkling wine, the former led by Salinger, the latter by Show Sparkling and Original Sparkling Shiraz. The second claim, even more relevant to the Seppelt of today, was based on the small-volume superb red wines made by Colin Preece from the 1930s through to the early '60s... Preece would have been a child in a lolly shop if he'd had today's viticultural resources to draw on, and would be quick to recognise the commitment of the winemakers and viticulturists to the supreme quality of today's portfolio." - James Halliday

Rating

Gold International Wine Challenge 2003

Wonderfully old and complex; woody, rich, sweet, nutty with a touch of coffee and massively intense. It has a mandarin marmalade zip to it that balances the honeyed sweetness and leaves it with you for hours. Difficult to exaggerate its splendour.

 

95 points James Halliday

Brown-gold; another step up in richness and lusciousness, an unctuous, essency palate with spicy plum pudding and caramel overtaking outright raisin flavours; the finish is sleek and lingering; 10-15 years barrel age. Serve chilled; 500 ml.
