Tokay Muscadelle Rutherglen Victoria
4 TROPHYS for Best Tokay and Best Wine of Show and multi GOLD MEDALS including 2 Gold Medals Melbourne Wine Show.
This wine is produced from Rutherglen Tokay grapes (synonymous with Muscadelle) which are grown at the Morris Mia Mia vineyard. The vines are reliant on natural rainfall only which rewards with lower cropping vines that can produce fruit of high sugar levels and concentrated flavours. Once the desired baume level 15 to 16 is reached, pressing occurs, then a high strength neutral spirit is added to arrest the fermentation. The wine is then pumped into casks for the maturation process to occur. A selection of wines from different vintages is chosen, each contributing special characteristics to make a wine with complexity of age, youthfulness, freshness of flavour and consistency of style. Alcohol 17.5% alc/vol Baume 10%9 Acid 3.3g/L pH 4.42.
Mid amber with slight green highlights. A concentrated nose showing great depth of malty Tokay character. The palate is complex, intense and luscious, combined with freshness. A superb Tokay of real quality and richness.
