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.
