Muscat Cocktails

Get excited to explore the fortifieds of Rutherglen!

Australian muscat is unlike any other wine on the planet. It’s complex, mysterious, enchanting, captivating and a true flavour experience. Muscat in Victoria’s Rutherglen dates back to 1860, so when you sample fortified wines from the region, many have been carefully tended by up to five generations of the one winemaking family.
