The Range

The HIP SIP range of fortified wines are made to capture the attention of young consumers and bring new relevance to this unique wine style. The range consists of two varieties - HIP SIP Muscat and HIP SIP Tawny. Both wines are perfect for enjoying on their own, pairing with chocolate desserts or mixed into modern and classic cocktails. 

The Wine

The wine has a rich amber colour. With aromas of raisins, candied peel and spice with notes of sweet butterscotch. The palate is intense showing the benefit of time in barrel with concentrated fruit and lovely balanced sweetness.

Variety

Brown Muscat is a clone of the oldest and noblest variety of Muscat, Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains (Muscat of Frontignan is a synonym).

Winemaking

The fruit is allowed to become very ripe on the vine before being picked. It is the crushed and macerated for up to 3 days, to allow all the sugars to soak out of the skins. The must is pressed off at the required point in fermentation before being fortified with grape spirit. The resulting wine is then aged in large barrels for between 5-80 years, depending on the product classification. 

Food Matching

Nip, swig or slurp with chocolate desserts, mix into your favourite cocktail or savour on its own.

Cellaring Potential

Hip Sip does its ageing in the old oak barrels prior to bottling and will not age further in the bottle. Once opened it should be consumed in about a month.

"Sipping this probably won't make you hip but its retro bottle, resembling a hip flask, is pretty cool. And the muscat? Not overly complex but good. A lighter shade of toffee with flavours of brittle toffee, raisins dunked in brandy and panettone with butter. Warming with the spirit brandy-like, just a slight dustiness on the nose." Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
