Inarguably one of Australia's finest wines, the only thing that surprises here is that it's not more expensive!

Impossibly rich and hedonistically dense, this fabulous fortified has world-beating richness with a finish that has to be tasted to be believed. Honestly, it goes on and on and on and on...

There are few finer wines in Australia.

Expert Reviews

Imagine the aromas of a cloved orange pomander, the best dark chocolate and toffee, raisins plumped up with brandy, this Rare has that and a hundred times more. The palate ineffably complex save to say smooth, warming and in tiptop shape. 500ml. 98 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion

Like 100 Christmases in the one glass. Ancient material blended across decades and decades, delivering immense depth, layering and complexity. 100 points - Nick Stock

How's it taste?

Benchmark fortified from Rutherglen. Impossibly dense, incredibly unctuous and wildly rich, it has a finish that will last for decades. It's that impressive.

How was it made?

Muscat is a wine style unique to Australia. Made from Muscat à Petit Grain Rouge, known locally as Brown Muscat, these wine captivate wine consumers with their richness and intensity of flavour. Ranging from bright rainsiny sweetness in its youth to more intense, complex and rich flavours of fruit cake, mocha and citrus peel as it ages. An ideal after dinner wine, Muscat pairs beautifully with chocolate, fruity desserts or strong cheeses.

This Muscat is made up of base vintages that can go back as far as 100 years old, with the average base sitting between 20 and 40 years.

Who made it?

Over 155 years, the Morris family have earned their esteemed position as one of the most prominent wine-making families in Australia. Today, David Morris continues their wine making history combining tradition with contemporary techniques, ensuring that the Morris name remains one of the Australia’s most iconic and respected wine family dynasties. The original vineyards were planted in 1859, in Rutherglen, Victoria, by George Morris. Sadly these vineyards were destroyed by Phyloxera in the late 1890s. However, Charles Morris (George's son) planted a new vineyard in 1897, just a few kilometres away from the original site. This vineyard, named Mia Mia, is still in use today. Fifth generation winemaker, David Morris, is currently the Chief Winemaker for Morris Wines, although the company was aquired by Casella brands in 2016. The Morris range focuses on fortified wines, for which they have won numerous awards over the years. But they also produce a range of table wines.

My friends often ask me, “How do you know which wine to pick?” To be honest to comes down to a range of factors; the occasion, the people, the food or even just what mood I’m in. But one of the things I love is when I try something new or slightly different to what I’d normally drink and it blows me away. Here are a few wines that I’ve recently uncovered:
