Dutschke Muscat 10 Year Old

Dutschke Muscat 10 Year Old

$54.95

Dutschke Muscat 10 Year Old. This Muscat is made by harvesting the grapes when very ripe, almost raisined, then crushed and fortified with grape spirit during the initial stages of fermentation. The grape spirit prevents any further fermentation and preserves the unique Muscat flavours and natural grape sweetness. The wine is then clarified and put to barrel, to mature untouched for years. By blending different vintages of Wally’s Muscat together, an average age of 10 years and a complexity of flavours from years in oak is achieved. Traces of the very old Muscat I brought back from Bailey’s also contribute to the richness and depth of this special drop.

One may find characters of fruitcake, toffee, raisins, coffee and butterscotch. These flavours combined with the natural grape sweetness, oak and alcohol all go together to produce a wine style uniquely Australian.

Best consumed with a good mate on a cold night, or even poured over vanilla ice cream. Great stuff!

Dutschke Wines is a family-owned boutique producer of classic Barossa red wines and fortifieds.

Wayne Dutschke

Wayne started making wine in 1979 in Australia as well as knocking out a few vintages in Spain and California. In 1990, Wayne formed his own brand called WillowBend producing a blend of Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet. Interest from the United States in 1998 brought about a name change to Dutschke Wines as well as a few new brands – GHR Neighbours Shiraz, St. Jakobi Shiraz and the reserve wine Oscar Semmler Shiraz.

Since their first crush in 1990, Dutschke Wines has strived to make wines of the highest quality that show Wayne’s expression of the characteristics of that precious patch of dirt from a precious corner of the Barossa Valley.
