Wine of the Week AU

Morris Classic Liqueur Muscat NV, Rutherglen, AUD $25 (500ml)

Much younger than the AUD $90 Old Premium but still showing great depth of flavour and lusciousness, this has a medium-deep red/tawny hue with yellow tints, and a hauntingly perfumed bouquet of rose petals, flowers and spicy muscat fruit. Very sweet, deep, lush flavour and freshness. Great quality – and affordable! (screwcap)
