Morris of Rutherglen Classic 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 grapes for the Classic Liqueur Muscat were all hand harvested and on arrival at the winery 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. At blending, a selection of wines from different vintages were chosen, each contributing special characteristics to make a wine with complexity; age, youthfulness, freshness of flavour and consistency of style. In the glass, the wine has a deep brown core with an amber rim. The nose opens with a rich, yet fresh bouquet of rose petals, preserved fruit and nuts. Luscious flavours of sweet spices and dried fruit fill the mouth with a long finish, hinting of oak. It is captivating for its rich and intense flavour. With an average age of around eight years, the Classic Muscat has freshness and varietal character balanced by subtle age complexity from time in barrel.

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!
If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
