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

One of the most widely grown and easily recognized wine grape varietals in the world is the Muscat, an ancient grape with an exceptional amount of versatility. For centuries, Muscat varietal grapes have been used all over Europe for the production of wonderfully fruity wines of many different shades and colors, which, with their strong 'grapey' flavor have come to be known as a quintessential fine wine grape. Their relatively high acidity also means they are ideal for the production of sparkling wines, and the fizzy Muscat wines of Italy are widely agreed to be amongst the best in the world. In more recent years, New World countries have shown a huge amount of flair when it comes to the Muscat grape, and have had plenty of success in allowing its natural and vibrant character to come through in the bottle.

Region: Victoria

As with much of coastal Australia, Victoria is something of an ideal location for viticulture. Situated on the south west coast of the country, across the sea from Tasmania, the Victoria wine industry has been going strong for well over a century. While Victoria was once the beating heart of the Australian wine scene, it is now only the third most productive region in the country. However, the hundreds of wineries in Victoria are renowned for their dedication to quality over quantity, and their willingness to experiment not only with the latest viticultural technologies, but also with a wide range of imported grape varietals. As such, alongside the ever-present 'Australian' grapes such as Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, you're just as likely to find Viognier and Sémillon in Victoria, making it an exciting and fascinating region for wine makers and wine drinkers alike.

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.
