The colour of this Australian fortified wine is rich dark brown with hints of brick red. The nose exudes intense, complex aromas of rose, peel and spice. The rich, sweet palate it is mouth-coatingly lush, with Turkish delight and candied peel flavours and a hint of rancio evident on the drying finish. Great on its own, with hard cheeses or rich Christmas fruitcake.


These fortified wines are carefully blended and are at their freshest and ready to drink once bottled.


This Australian muscat is rated 90 points with James Halliday 2017 Wine Companion.

The fruit for St Leonards Muscat underwent maceration on skins for 3-6 days, producing 1-2% alcohol. The juice was pressed out and then fortified with neutral spirit and transferred to old oak barrels for maturation. Our Muscat is made using a solera system so some of the base wines can be as old as 20 years or more.

Made from Brown Muscat grapes from our Wahgunyah vineyard planted in 1920. Brown Muscat is a clone of the oldest and noblest variety of Muscat, Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains (Muscat of Frontignan is a synonym).

Rutherglen Muscats are classified into four tiers that mark a progression in richness, complexity and intensity of flavour, due to the age of wines used.

On average they are:
Rutherglen Muscat 2-5 yrs
Classic Rutherglen Muscat 6-10 yrs
Grand Rutherglen Muscat 11-19 yrs
Rare Rutherglen Muscat 20 yrs plus
