Liqueur Muscat is a classic Australian winestyle. This award winning example is bursting with concentrated flavours of raisins and figs with gorgeous aged rancio notes. Aged in barrel and designed to enjoy as soon as opened, this Muscat is best enjoy with chocolate and dark fruit based desserts, or after a meal with a platter of cheeses, dried fruit and nuts.
Appearance: Nut brown with a slight green hue.
Bouquet: Intense aromas of raisin, fig and spice with underlying floral notes.
Palate: A rich and luscious palate exploding with rich Muscat flavours of raisins, figs, dates, toffee and caramel. Sweetness balanced with some vanillin oak notes make for a lovely lingering finish.
Winemaking. Fruit is left on the vines to become very ripe before harvesting at 16-18 baume. Once harvested the fruit is crushed, partially fermented then fortified on skins to further extract the floral and aromatic flavours from the fruit. The wine is pressed off skins and then transferred to barrels for maturation.
