What is muscat wine?

Do some people ask what is muscat wine? A wine from the muscat grapes is the blunt answer. There is liqueur muscat port wine, which means that the muscat wine is sweet as a muscat fortified wine. There are many different muscat grape varieties. Some are for eating, called table grapes and the other muscat grape varieties with small berries and used for making muscat wine.

If the muscat grapes are left to ripen and wither to raisins, muscat liqueur can be produced easily. The very ripe grapes are used at Harris Swan Valley winery to make a rich muscat liqueur with the addition of a neutral brandy spirit. A liqueur is a very sweet wine, and after many years in the cask becomes thick and treacly.

However, if the muscat grapes are picked, in mid-season, the wine can be made into a dry style of muscat wine. This type of table wine is an excellent accompaniment to all kinds of foods, whether it be cheeses, meats or desserts.

Liqueur Muscat winemaking

Late picked organic muscat a petit grains rouge from our Perth organic vineyard was crushed and fermented with our natural yeast to a sweet sugar level of 15 degrees Baume'.  Then, after basket pressing and transferring to an open fermenter, the ferment continued at 25C.  Once the sugar level was to that desired by the winemaker, the wine was fortified with neutral brandy spirit to retain the fresh fruit flavours and then stored in oak barriques and cellared underground for long term maturation.

After many seasons the port wine was bottled. This fortified organic muscat wine has alcohol added, however, it is clarified and filtered, but vegan friendly. A beautiful "classic" liqueur muscat dessert sweet wine. This wine is a blend of our vintages starting with the first 2004 vintage with an average age of over 15 years.

Muscat Liqueur Review

Harris Organic Muscat liqueur received rave reviews regarding its first release of fortified muscat liqueur wine, 15 years in the making.

The judges said when voted into the top 25 wines of WA in 2019. "Potent, decadent, rich, unctuous muscat of intensity, concentration and depth. All liquified dried fruits, nuts, caramel, toast. Feels like some judiciously old material in the mix with good clean spirit backing up all that intensity."

Huge authority here – big presence in glass and palate. Done well. A landmark WA example.

This rich and luscious organic wine is available in 750mL bottles. The current release is a blend of 2004 and 2005 vintages.
