1961 Julian James Reserve Muscat

80.00

It was 1979 when my Father and I decided on creating a blended Liqueur Muscat, utilizing the finest vintages of Brown Muscat and drawing off a small percentage of his 1961. This is where the Solero began. I never thought for a moment it would be 25 years later before the final blend would be made and the first bottle sold.

It was a moment to cherish in more ways than one. To see first hand how the ‘rose-water’ aromatics of the young wines with 30 years of blending become concentrated, dark and incredibly complex.

Each bottling is identified as a separate blend number and personally signed and dated to confirm these details.

The techniques used by my late Grandfather and Father, of drying the fruit after harvest, and mincing the raisins, are still used. No modern technology is of any benefit whatsoever.

The palate is incredibly rich, luscious and concentrated, though always with a degree of freshness and overall balance.

2007 ANZ Wine Industry Awards-  Best W.A. Wine from all Wine Shows.
