Pfeiffer Wines

Pfeiffer Wines is a passionate 2nd generation wine making family from historic Rutherglen, one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Pfeiffer Wines is a 5 star James Halliday Winery and has wone over 50 trophies and 350 medals. Pfeiffer Wines are grown under the pristine blue Australian skies and produced in some of the world's oldest soils. Pfeiffer Wines has a rich, diverse portfolio of premium award winning wines.
The Pfeiffer Rutherglen Muscat is a fine example of this foundation style. It has a bouquet of floral and raisin fruit, and a rich, luscious palate. The blend had been carefully prepared to incorporate the youthful freshness of the younger parcels, with the complex, concentrated flavours seen in the older parcels.
Any decadent dessert but equally delicious with a chilled Tomato Gazpacho soup.
Each year Muscat grapes are harvested at high sugar level. After fortification this wine is clarified then transferred into barrels and casks of different volumes for several years (3-30). It is this maturation process that concentrates the wines and produces rich complex flavours. These parcels of varying ages are then blended together prior to bottling to create the perfect balance for drinking.
