Extremely proud to win Best Fortified in Show at the Barossa Wine Show 2022! Ron has outdone himself picking up a Trophy for Museum Fortified for the third time. Rare Muscat was crowned Best Fortified in Show after patiently sitting for 25 years developing richness and depth of flavour. The ultra-ripe grapes hang on until late in vintage when the berries shrivel and we get the best flavours and natural sweetness.
We really appreciate this win and thank the whole show team, Barossa Wine and trophy sponsor Tarac Technologies. We love the feedback from the judging panel ‘Integrated sweetness, lovely luscious flow set the gold apart’.
Previous years have seen Rare Semillon and Rare Tawny get similar honours in the Best Museum Fortified Classes. These are special limited releases that have taken decades to develop richness, complexity and depth of flavour. We think of them as “liquid gold”. Every time we take a sip, we think of the “angels share”, the wine that evaporates to the heavens during the ageing process.
All entries from around the Barossa region were of such high calibre, we’re proud to be among the same company. Congratulations to all other medal and trophy winners.
