Morris Rutherglen Classic Liqueur Muscat NV
Morris Classic Liqueur Muscat in the glass has a deep brown core with an amber rim. The nose opens with a rich, yet fresh bouquet of rose petals, preserved fruit and nuts. Luscious flavours of sweet spices and dried fruit fill the mouth with a long finish, hinting of oak. It is captivating for its rich and intense flavour. With an average age of around eight years, the Classic Muscat has freshness and varietal character balanced by subtle age complexity from time in barrel.
Since 1859, five generations of Morris family winemakers have been producing world class fortified and red table wines led Muscat and Durif, a unique variety pioneered by fourth generation winemaker Mick Morris.
Today, 5th generation family winemaker David Morris continues the to build on the legacy left by his forbears.
His Estate grown wines are all handcrafted from hand-picked grapes off old dry grown vineyards and traditional winemaking techniques employed to produce wine of outstanding regional character.
David Morris is the heir to a tradition.
When his father Mick, one of Rutherglen’s favourite sons, retired in 1993 David became the fifth generation Morris to become winemaker at the company’s Mia Mia winery, 15km east of Rutherglen on the rich Brown’s Plains.
The corrugated iron winery, with its wax-lined concrete fermenting vats and ancient equipment, has been run by a Morris since its foundation in 1859.
