Rutherglen Estates is delighted to have their 2005 Noble Botrytis Muscadelle chosen as the dessert wine to be served to Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, at a lunch in their honour at Government House in Canberra on Sunday 23 October.
Winemaker, Marc Scalzo says ‘It is great honour to have one of our wines served to the Queen. It is a fantastic acknowledgement of the quality of Rutherglen Estates wines to be served alongside some of Australia’s icon wines. This recognition reinforces our commitment to producing world class wines specialising in varieties and styles that are a bit different to the mainstream. We strive to make wines that show freshness, intensity and are identifiable as great wines from Rutherglen.’
At the Royal luncheon the 2005 Noble Botrytis Muscadelle will be matched with the ‘leatherwood honey pannacotta with mixed berries’.
