Meursault, Rutherglen

This AOC in Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, is renowned as one of the most reliably excellent sources of Chardonnay in the world (though there are also small amounts of Pinot Noir grown). There are more top producers here than anywhere else in Côte-d'Or, despite there not being any Grand Cru vineyards in the AOC. It's the incredible proliferation of high-quality Premier Cru and commune-level wine that makes this region so popular.

Meursault Chardonnay is typically oaken in style, and is often described as having rich, buttery notes that are evidence of a classic Burgundy terroir.
Located within the North East Victoria zone in Victoria, Rutherglen is a wine region situated to the north of Beechworth and to the east of Glenrowan. This wine region is considered the most important fortified wine production area in Australia, producing Muscats and Tokays which are internationally renowned for their exceptional quality and style. Most of the vineyards are located within the northern half of the area, where it is separated by the Murray River from New South Wales. The first vines in Rutherglen were planted during the gold rush era in 1851 and boasts of some of the oldest wineries in the country. Combining old traditions and new technology, Rutherglen has come a long way from its beginnings. The area received official recognition in 1997 when it was accorded GI (Geographical Indication) status.

Today, the wine region uses a variety of grapes for their wines including their famous Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains and Tokay which is used to make the famous fortified wines that Rutherglen is known for. The wines made from Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains are incomparable in depth and complexity. The wine is made by a particular winemaking process which involves a slow and oxidate barrel-ageing procedure that gives out a wide range of flavours including butterscotch, toffee, caramel, sweet spices and tea liquor.
