A consistent trophy winner, this luscious fortified dessert wine is predominantly muscat - vibrant, deep amber-brown with a green rim. The bouquet is lifted and layered with spice, butterscotch and fruit cake. Many years maturation in old oak casks has produced richness and rancio complexity. Intense flavours of raisin and toffee sustain a long, clean finish. Aptly labelled, this limited release has the stamp of a true Artizan – hand crafted and unique. These qualities are also reflected in the label with original artwork by Merilyn Hutton.”

Critic Scores & reviews
"Deep tawny-amber colour with a yellow-green rim, very viscous when swirled in the glass - the signs of a wine of great age. The bouquet is fresh and yet shows great depth of aged muscat character. It's very concentrated, profound and ultra-rich on the palate: tremendous persistence and super-satisfying to sip. A glorious old liqueur muscat of sublime character."
"29 FEB 2016 Deep tawny brown colour with a yellow-ish rim. The bouquet is marvellously mature and complex, showing toffee and malt as well as aged muscat fruit and wood-aged rancio flavours. There is a lot of raisiny sweetness on the mid-palate and the flavour reverberates around the mouth long after it's gone. Luscious sweetness and great length. A very distinguished old muscat."

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.
Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.
The wine regions of WA sit at the state’s southwest tip. The famed Margaret River region, with its warm maritime climate, lies roughly 200 kilometres south of Perth. Rainfall is high here compared with other Australian wine regions, but it falls mainly during the winter. Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular planting, and winemakers often blend it with Merlot to create Bordeaux-style wines. Margaret River is also distinguished for its Chardonnays, with their high natural acidity and concentrated stone-fruit aromas. Malolactic fermentation and barrel ageing further lend complexity to these special wines. Sauvignon Blanc is also widely planted here and often goes into blends with Semillon. Wine production also occurs in the Great Southern region, which includes the subregions of Frankland River and Mount Barker. Here, they produce floral Rieslings, peppery and elegant Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Other wine regions in this large state include Blackwood Valley, Geographe, Peel, Pemberton, Manjimup, and Swan District.
Margaret River is the name of a river, town and key wine region. It is one of the younger viticultural regions in Australia, quickly gaining popularity for its world-class wine. Located 280km South of Perth in Western Australia, the first plantings were only made in 1967. The region has grown rapidly and is recognised as one of the great wine-producing regions of the world, with over 200 wineries in operation. Made up of predominantly boutique producers, with a number of big player wineries also, the region makes up only 3% of the Australian wine production, but commands over 20% of the premium wine market. The wineries in the region are vibrant, innovative and progressive in their approach to viticulture.
The Mediterranean style climate provides superior maritime growing conditions, with vines not affected by extreme summer and winter temperatures. The region is well known for producing outstanding red wines; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and to a lesser extent Shiraz, Tempranillo and Malbec. Both straight varietals and famous Bordeaux blends can be outstanding.
In the white wines, Chardonnays of great depth and character, and fresh Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the main varietals the region is famous for. Lesser quantities of Viognier, Riesling and Muscat are also produced.
