Professional Wine Reviews for Yalumba Muscat Museum Show Reserve NV

Rated 94 by Wine Spectator
This Australian "sticky" rivals the quality of many more-prestigious versions, at a fraction of the price. It's a gorgeous mouthful of spice and walnut, sweet and opulent, and is deep with clove, coffee, dried litchi and berry flavors that linger with hints of tangerine peel on the finish. Yummy. Drink now.

Additional Information on Yalumba Muscat Museum Show Reserve NV

Winery: Yalumba

Varietal: Muscat

Muscat varietal grapes are surely one of the most versatile wine grapes in the world. In dozens of countries across Europe and the New World, they are used for the production of everything from fine, fruity dry wines, to elegant sparkling examples and even dense, aromatic fortified wines of exceptional character and flavor It is a favorite with winemakers and vintners worldwide as a result of its hardiness and the high yields the vines routinely produce, and grows in a wide range of terroirs and climatic conditions. Such conditions have a considerable effect on the grapes themselves, which is part of the reason why Muscat wines are so varied when it comes to flavor, aroma and characteristics. Generally, Muscat wines are recognizable as a result of their strong, fresh and distinctly 'grapey' flavor, making them popular with those looking for a simple yet elegant wine easily paired with many different foods.

Region: Victoria

The south westerly region of Victoria in Australia has long been an important wine region, responsible for the production of many of Australia's most interesting and characterful wines. The climate of the region is ideal for growing a wide range of both red and white wine grapes, and wineries in Victoria are renowned for their openness to experimentation with both new techniques and methods, as well as a wide range of grape varietals. Despite there being over six hundred wineries operating in Victoria, it is only the third most productive wine region in Australia. This is due to the fact that the wineries of the region have a dedication to quality over quantity which is unmatched elsewhere in the country, making Victoria a region full of fascinating surprises, and some seriously excellent examples of Australian wine.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
