"This is sweet and silky, with a light feel to the texture and gorgeous apricot, orange marmalade and date-nut bread flavors, lingering on the polished finish. Muscadelle. Drink now. 1,500 cases imported. " (WS)

"Possessing a pale amber color, the NV Tokay has intense grape juice and sultana aromas with supporting notes of fig paste and manuka honey. The palate is thick and sweet with enough refreshing acidity to provide lift into the long finish.

These fortified wines are all bottled to drink now. The extended solera aging process has rendered them relatively stable to changes and they can be stored for a good number of years." (WA)

"($19; for 375 ml.) Deep amber with a bright rim. Spicy aromas of gingerbread, baked apple and toffee, plus a subtle floral quality and a touch of white pepper. Surprisingly lively for such a sweet wine, with good lift to its candied pit fruit and spicecake flavors. Clings nicely on the finish, leaving sweet toffee and date notes behind." (VM)

"One of the most drinkable Tokays is this entry-level offering from Campbells. It’s only light amber in color, suggesting its youth, while the fruit comes through as citrus and apricot laced with clove and caramel. It’s sweet but not overbearing." (WE)

Winery Notes:
This classification is the foundation of the style; displaying the fresh aromas, rich fruit, clean spirit and great length of flavour on the palate, which are the mark of all the Topaques of Rutherglen.

The Topaques of Rutherglen bear a mark of authenticity – an oval logotype with a stylised 'R' – which is only applied to the wines drawn from the great vineyards of the region. The 'Topaques of Rutherglen' trademark assures the highest quality of wine exclusively sourced from the Rutherglen Wine Region.

Campbells 'house style' is typically complex and elegant, capturing a rich purity of fruit flavours.” Colin Campbell
