Buller Wines Fine Old Tawny
Maturation in old oak casks for many years has changed this wine from bright red to the tawny hues it exhibits today. With this slow transformation in colour has come also a change in flavour to the complex, rich and satisfying characters of a mature tawny. This wine is blended from stocks of many vintages held at Bullers Rutherglen cellars. The aim of blending is to provide a balance between the ‘rancio’ characters of an old wine and the freshness of younger wines.
Established in Rutherglen in 1921 by Reginald Langdon Buller, the century old ‘Calliope Vineyard’ was named after the only surviving ship from the Great Hurricane of Samoa – Reginald’s vision of his new enterprise successfully sailing through the tempests of business and agricultural life proved prophetic. After almost 100 years Buller Wines is testament to the foresight of Reginald and is a leading winery within North East Victoria. The Buller’s name has long been associated with some of Rutherglen’s finest fortifieds, a treat many can still enjoy today thanks to our vast inherited collection of premium barrel-aged fortifieds.
