Made from Brown Muscat grapes from our Wahgunyah vineyard planted in 1920. It is from these (replanted) vineyards that All Saints Estate won Australia's first international Gold Medal, in London, for a sweet blend of Shiraz and Muscat. Brown Muscat is a clone of the oldest and noblest variety of Muscat, Muscat Blanc, Petits Grains (Muscat of Frontignan is a synonym).
Rutherglen Muscats are classified into four tiers that mark a progression in richness, complexity and intensity of flavour, due to the age of wines used.
On average they are:
Rutherglen Muscat 2-5 yrs
Classic Rutherglen Muscat 6-10 yrs
Grand Rutherglen Muscat 11-19 yrs
Rare Rutherglen Muscat 20 yrs plus
