Shottesbrooke 1337 Muscat, McLaren Vale 1987 $50 / 500ml 

A superb, character-filled, very old wine of mid amber-tawny colour, its honey, floral, toffee and crème brulee aromas enhanced by serious rancio from age, and an oaky lift. Very rich, powerful and lush with a finish dried off by nutty rancio and acidity. A meditation sipper. Drink now. 20 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: nuts and muscatels
