The Wine

All Saints Rare Rutherglen Muscadelle is a masterful blend of the rarest 50 plus year-old stocks in Australia. A combination of great age, complex rancio characters and skilful blending has created an intensely complex palate of tea leaf, old oak, molasses and malt. A Rutherglen masterpiece.

Variety

Originally thought to come from the Hungarian Tokai variety it is now accepted that these wines are made from the Muscadelle grape, a white variety. The long, warm Autumn days in Rutherglen allow the fruit to ripen to the high Baume levels and raisining so essential for the style.

Winemaking

The fruit is handpicked when the sugar is high and the fruit then crushed to release its sweet, concentrated juice. Pre-fermentation cold soaking swells the shrivelled berries and extracts flavour from the skins before undergoing minimal fermentation prior to fortification at 18%. The finished wine is a blend of selected vintages, stored in large oak foudres and racked into bottle as required. Muscadelle has been grown at All Saints Estate since the winery was established in 1864. The current vines were planted during 1962 and 1963. The long, warm Autumn days at Wahgunyah are perfect for allowing the fruit to ripen to the high baumé levels and raisining so essential for the style.

 

Food Matching

This extremely rare and limited wine is best savoured on its own for that very special occasion. Also wonderful with the world’s finest cheeses.

Cellaring Potential

Fortified wines are aged in barrel and not intended for lengthy maturation in bottle. They should be consumed within 18 months of purchase to be enjoyed at their best.

"Everything you could wish for from a rare muscadelle with a 50+ solera age: black tea, pomander, blood orange zest, with a slight radicchio bitterness, which is complex, as is the umami flavour of salted caramel. And there’s the requisite flavour of plum pudding. Beguiling." 
Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
