Modelled after the enticing and well-known fortified muscats of the Rutherglen region in Australia, the alluring and concentrated aromatics of dried apricots and steeped Earl Grey tea with a hint of vanilla, draw you into savour this gorgeous fortified wine.
Each year our Muscat grapes are allowed to raisin for as long as possible before harvest. The perfumed notes follow through on the palate where you will experience flavors of raisins, caramelized brown sugar, cinnamon and hints of Earl Greay tea notes unique to the Muscat grape varietal. This wine showcases power and complexity that can only come from time. Our Liqueur Muscat is produced in a Solera system, meaning the average age of the blend progressively becomes older. The wine is aged in neutral oak barrels and is a blend of three Muscat varietals, the dominant one being the Schönberger grape. The resulting blend is as sweet and luscious as possible yet balanced by a firm drying tanning structure on the finish.
Since this wine is a combination of vintages, the Liqueur Muscat will not benefit from any additional cellaring. It is already showing aged characteristics from the multiple years in neutral barrels. It is a charming way to end an evening with this beauty.
