R.L. Buller Victoria Tawny Port

R.L. Buller Victoria Tawny Port...$14.99 / 750ml
Tasting Notes:
Sweet fruit flavours combined with developed porty characters. Hints of rancio. Well-integrated spirit. Clean fresh finish.

Non vintage - but here are some previous reviews
Previous Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:
“These blends represent the newest bottled offerings from this Rutherglen producer, an area that produces spectacular fortifieds, especially the Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle). Their freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed. The real values are the less expensive cuvees generally produced from 5- to 6-year-old solera systems…The Victoria Tawny exhibits a medium garnet color in addition to sweet, unctuous strawberry and cherry fruit. It is a blend of four grapes, Carina, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, and Shiraz.”
Rated 92/100 Wine Advocate
This is a wonderful tawny with lavender, dried fruit, prune and orange peel. Full body, medium sweet and a flavorful finish. The Rutherglen character is here!
