Wine Description

Yalumba first began making wines at the Angaston winery more than 167 years ago, and the production of fortified wines has long been part of that history. Today, Yalumba maintains its reputation for premium quality fortified wines by occasionally releasing very small parcels of show reserve stocks. This velvety wine is blended from antique barrels of our very best tawny, and laid down in our historic cellars over many years. The aging process evaporates a tiny angel’s share every year leaving a rich, concentrated wine with a nutty character.

"The Non-Vintage Museum Reserve 21 Years Old Antique Tawny notches up the power and concentration. Amber brown it has a fragrant perfume of figs, dates, molasses, and assorted candied fruits. It has exceptional length and balancing acidity. Drink these fortified wines at the end of a meal with roasted nuts and a good cigar.
Yalumba has devoted considerable effort to bringing out the best in Viognier."
— Wine Advocate, Dec 2009
"Rich, dark and unctuous, its layers of crème brûlée, walnut, hazelnut and coffee mingling easily against lovely hints of molasses. The finish brings it all together harmoniously, and lingers beautifully."
— Wine Spectator, Jan 2010
