Morris of Rutherglen Old Premium Rare Liqueur Muscat NV
For over 155 years, the Morris family have earned their position as one of the most prominent winemaking families in Australia, with their name being synonymous with the production of ‘Liqueur Muscat’ for many years. The fruit for the Old Premium Rare had considerable hang time on the vine, allowing for high sugar levels and intense flavours to develop. At the winery the grapes were crushed and allowed to start fermentation. Once the desired Baumé level was reached, pressing occurred and a high strength neutral spirit was added to arrest fermentation, before being transferred into casks for maturation. Only the best wines from the best vintages were chosen to blend the Old Premium Rare Muscat; a true art of balancing very old and much younger material. The older vines impart intense, concentrated and luscious flavours with aged complexity to this wine. These are complimented by fresh fruit characters from the younger wines. In the glass, the wine is a dark olive brown with a green tinge on the rim. An intense bouquet of raisin fruit and soft woody characters delight the nose. The palate shows great depth, length and complexitywith rich and luscious flavours of sweet spices, dried raisins and Christmas pudding.

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
