See recent notes for the Stanton and Killeen Grand Muscat. This is the Topaque (cannot call it Tokay any more) made from the Muscadelle grape. Like the Grand Muscat the average blended age is 15 to 20 years. Very similar in flavour profile with the Muscat, the latter probably a bit sweeter with more molasses notes. This Topaque is a tiny bit more bitter with caramel, toffee and a lot of liquid raisin character. Thoroughly delicious. These old Rutherglen fortifieds are one of Australia’s gifts to the vinous world. — 2 years ago

Sweet raisin smell when you first open the bottle.
The colour is an eye catching dark plum red.
Dark Berry fruits on the tip of the tounge being very sweet and moving down to the back and getting that acidity and earthy/minty taste, ending with an overall raisin after taste — 3 years ago
Delicious paired with dark chocolate. Perfect ending to a meal — 4 months ago
Inky black and delicious! More luscious than Rutherglen durif the tannin much softer. Lovely Friday night drinking. — a year ago
