2011 WINE ENTHUSIAST BEST BUYS TOP 100: #90

"The N.V. Fine Tokay is amber colored with flavors of honey, fig, citrus fruits, and orange marmalade." (WA)

"A bargain among Down Under fortifieds, Buller’s Victorian blended Tokay features wonderfully complex notes of tea, spice and citrus atop lush caramel-like sweetness. It’s silky and balanced, with a long, citrusy finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Viticular Practices:
The wines which make up this traditional blend are the result of many years of shared experience from my father and grandfather. I am fortunate to have this pool of knowledge and access to aged material to draw on. To make this style I blend a number of vintages. The older material provides weight and depth of flavour – the younger wine adds freshness and lightness.

Cellaring recommendations:
Fully matured when released and ready for immediate consumption. Best enjoyed with desserts like bittersweet Belgian chocolate, figs, chocolate mousse cake, fine mild cheeses and fresh fruit, pecan pie, dried fruits and nuts.

Wine Makers Notes:
Colour/appearance Amber with orange tints. Bright; Aroma/bouquet Aromatic with toffee and malt aromas. Palate Smooth textured with toffee and caramel sweetness balanced by a touch of rancio. Complex hints of nuttiness and some cold tea characters. Good length and weight. Long nutty aftertaste. Maturation Old oak casks.
