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.
