Awards and Accolades
92 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "The Vino-Lok glass button is an elegant and logical closure. Pale red-brown, it has a perfumed bouquet of rose petals and spices, the palate intense, but dangerously drinkable with its glorious raisined fruit, the finish as fresh as a daisy. You can find Barossa Valley shiraz with this alcohol, so - trust me - this is a lot more pleasurable. And you can serve it chilled in summer. 375ml."
From the Winery
This Rutherglen Muscat is a blend of wines of a variety of ages, predominantly from 5 to 8 year old stock with a healthy slug of 15 to 20 year old material for extra depth and complexity. The younger material provides freshness and aromatic lift, whereas the older components of the blend give the Muscat wonderful character.
The fruit is allowed to become very ripe on the vine before harvest. It is picked and crushed, then macerated between 1 and 3 days. The must is then pressed and the juice is fortified with clean neutral spirit to 18%. The wine is then transferred to barrel where it matures, in most cases for many years.
Made from Muscat a Petits Grains, one of the oldest families of grape varieties. Various members of this family are grown across southern Europe and further beyond, often in the production of luscious dessert wines.
