Muscat Rutherglen Victoria
Bored with pontificating wine bores? Had it with guests ruining your parties by endlessly droning on about the relative merits of French and American oak or the latest wine reviewer scores? If so, All Saints have the solution for you, revitalize your evenings with Golden Cream Sherry. Made from luscious Muscat of Alexandria grapes, which can trace their origins to the libations of pharoahs and bacchanalia of ancient Rome. In Australia Muscat is also known as Gordo Blanco and is the secret ingredient to some of the nation's favourite wines.
Great wine comes from the soil and speaks of where it is from. At All Saints Estate the deep sandy loam soils were carved from the granite of the mountains and then ground, mixed and shaped by the majestic River Murray. Vines planted long ago reach deep down for essential minerals and nutrients, drawing out the very essence of the place and concentrating it in each year's harvest of grapes. The oldest vineyard blocks of Muscat were planted just after the First World War. These old timers are picture postcard vines, weather beaten and twisted, defying the years to produce fantastic fruit. With careful nurturing, the vines yield the quality of fruit to craft luscious, world class fortified wines. Alcohol 18.0%
A bright tawny gold colour. Appealing aromas of luscious, freshly crushed grapes. These sensations are carried through onto the palate. The palate explodes with a profusion of fresh grape flavours adding a velvety texture to the wine, expressing the natural fruit sugar character of grapes picked late in the season at full ripeness. An appealing style of sherry that's already done its ageing, ready to be enjoyed upon release. With its mouthfilling flavours, All Saints can be sipped on its own or enjoyed alongside desserts.
