Snooth Wine Search:
This was dragged out of the cellar for a possible contender for Wine Blogging Wednesday. No idea how long it had been down there although if the label is anything to go by (It won a Gold Medal in the International Wine Challenge 1993) is must date from 1994.
Served chilled (which brings out a delicate rose-petal touch to the aroma and flavour) or at room temperature (which makes it more port-like with richness and depth) it is delicious. Serve on its own or with chocolate desserts, blue-cheeses or rich fruit cake; lovely.

Rutherglen muscats are graded according to quality. This is not the top (Classic) level that gains all the press coverage but the Liqueur standard - which in my book offers superb value.
