The Range

Not far from the mountains, where the Murray still runs deep and clear, is a great curve in the river. Planted here is our vineyard where gnarled old vines send their roots deep into the rose-coloured sandy soils. Premium wines have been made and enjoyed here at St Leonards since 1860.

The Wine

The nose exudes intense, complex aromas of rose, peel and spice. The colour is dark brown with hints of red. On the palate it is rich and sweet, mouth-coatingly lush, with Turkish delight and candied peel flavours and a hint of rancio evident in the drying finish.

Variety

Made from Brown Muscat grapes from our Wahgunyah vineyard planted in 1920. Brown Muscat is a clone of the oldest and noblest variety of Muscat, Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains (Muscat of Frontignan is a synonym).

Winemaking

A mix of hand and machine picked grapes underwent maceration on skins for 3-6 days, producing 1-2% alcohol. The juice was pressed out then fortified with neutral spirit and run to old oak barrels of various sizes. The wine is made using a solera system so some base wines can be as old as 20yrs+.

Food Matching

Classic Rutherglen Muscat is an excellent complement to a wide range of dessert dishes - no wonder Rutherglen Muscat has a reputation as probably the greatest dessert wine style in the world. Great on its own, with hard cheeses or rich Christmas fruitcake.

Cellaring Potential

These wines are blended and are at their freshest and ready to drink once bottled

"Mid-mahogany with a ruby rim; it’s rich and balanced thanks to the acidity and its 15+ years ageing in old barrels, so while there’s an impression of sweetness, it’s not cloying. Tastes of candied peel, raisins in caramel fudge and a lemony note." Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
