One of Australia's unique styles of fortified wine, its very distinctive from the Rutherglen district. Upon the nose a malty depth but clean aroma. The palate shows a complexity of intense but delicious flavours with a toffee character.
From the Winery
Considered the lighter, finer cousin of Muscat, Topaque is produced from Muscadelle which is a white wine grape. The wine takes on a caramel hue from its extended time in oak and displays candied fruits, honey, toffee and a distinctive cold tea character on the palate. Created in four distinct styles, there is a Topaque for all occasions.
A concentrated nose showing great depths of malty Topaque characters.

GOLD - London International Wine Challenge 2013
"A remarkable wine for its modest price, this has a mid amber-orange colour and smells invitingly of butterscotch, malt and toffee; aromas which continue in the mouth where its very rich and concentrated, luscious and unctuous, with profound depth and terrific length of flavour. 17.5 per cent alcohol." - 92 Points, Huon Hooke
"Orange grading to pale olive-brown on the rim; great topaque and muscat are made with the young wines as the starting point, and they have to be good. This wine is that and then some, with full-on butterscotch, tea leaf, cup cake and creme brulee flavours, reaching a peak on the back-palate, before drying out nicely on the finish, leaving the mouth fresh and looking for the next sip. 500ml." - 94 Points, James Halliday - The Wine Companion
