Muscats from their national birthplace in North Eastern Victoria’s Rutherglen wine region are revered by connoisseurs and pleasure seekers alike. Our Australian fortified wine is rich brown in colour with a green edge while the nose exudes marvellously luscious aromas of ripe raisins. The full-bodied palate is rich in dried raisins, showing an impressive balance between aged and younger material, deeply flavoured with a lively lingering finish.
All Saints Estate Grand Rutherglen Muscat is a masterful blend of the richest and rarest 20 plus year-old stocks in Australia. This Australian dessert wine is sublime matched to dessert dishes with caramel, toffee, chocolate, and marinated fruits or rich ice cream - no wonder Rutherglen Muscat has a reputation for producing probably the greatest dessert wine style in the world. And of course it is the perfect partner to well brewed coffee and petit fours.

Our Grand Rutherglen Muscat is rated 96 points with James Halliday 2017 Wine Companion.
The wine is a blend of Muscat parcels of various ages, sweetness levels and flavours. This combination highlights the benefits of blending selected portions from different years resulting in a wine that is better than any of the individual components used in the blend. 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).
