Muscadelle wines from their national birthplace in North Eastern Victoria's Rutherglen wine region are revered by connoisseurs and pleasure-seekers alike.
Kaleidoscope hues of amber and gold. This Australian fortified wine displays exotic flavours of tea leaf, malt and coffee. Its seducing charms make this a truly hedonistic dessert wine. Delightful on its own or alongside coffee to end an evening. It is also wonderful served chilled with fruit based desserts. Sip with blue cheeses such as stilton, or enjoy with cheese or cream based desserts such as tiramisu.
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.

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.
