The Wine

Muscadelle wines from their national birthplace in North East Victoria are revered by connoisseurs and pleasure-seekers alike. They are classified by blend age to mark the dazzling progression in richness and intensity as older stocks are blended in from barrels. Kaleidoscope hues of amber and gold. Exotic flavours of tea-leaf, malt and toffee. Be seduced by the charms of this hedonistic dessert wine.

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

To make our fortified Muscadelle, the grapes are left on the vine to get really ripe; many of them shrivel up to raisins. The fruit is picked and crushed. This macerates for a few hours in order to allow any raisined berries to swell up. It is then pressed and the juice prevented from fermenting by the addition of high-strength neutral alcohol. The wine is allowed to settle for a few days before being racked off to barrel for maturation. The Rutherglen level of the classification is for the youngest wines with only a few years barrel age. Originally thought to come from the Hungarian Tokai variety (hence the former name), it is now accepted that Australian styles of Tokay are made from the Muscadelle grape, a white variety. 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

Delightful on its own or alongside coffee to end a meal, it would also be wonderful served chilled with fruit based desserts.

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.

"The first tier in the Rutherglen fortified hierarchy, the solera averaging 7 years. Pale amber; perfumed with florals especially lavender, freshly brewed lapsang souchang, leather box honey, butterscotch, fresh lemony acidity, and it glides across the palate with the greatest of ease." 
Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
