The 6th generation of the Chambers family to make wine in the Rosewood winery, Stephen, took over the winemaking in 2001. This venerable winery, started in 1858 by William Chambers, is one of the most fabled in Rutherglen. This charming, northeastern Victorian town, the sort of place that time forgot, still speaks of the gold rush that led to the town's foundation, and the development of the wine industry, in the 1850s. Winemaking has been subtly changed in recent years in order to make fresher and drier style of wines.
This classic Rutherglen is made in the traditional manner using a range of different oak barrels. Each wine is aged as a single vintage and vineyard parcel until blending. The resulting wine is unctuous and rich, yet zesty and balanced. The Rutherglen Muscat is typically tawny red in colour with aromas of rose petals, raisins and dried fruit. These characters carry through to the palate, balanced with fresh acidity.
