True Muscat Experience
- Duration: 90 Minutes
- Location: Wahgunyah, Vic
- Product code: TME
You’re doing this experience alongside barrels that were reparation payments from WW1, tasting wines two generations in the making and smelling the ‘angels share’ that’s evaporating from the barrels while you’re there. They say Rutherglen winemakers are going to heaven because they’ve been looking after the angels for all those years...”
The magic of Muscat is seemingly endless, especially for the Pfeiffer family of Rutherglen. Rutherglen is known for producing arguably the best Muscat in the world thanks to perfect growing conditions and a handful of families who have been its custodians for generations. But behind this complex, luscious wine style is wine stained clothes, hot days working the vines and decades of checking on dusty old barrels.
We want you to experience ‘the real Muscat’ by welcoming you to our century old barrel room where you will begin by syphoning Muscat straight from the barrel using a ‘wine thief.’ After tasting your way through four Muscat classifications and two barrel samples, it’s your turn to become a Muscat Master Blender. You will make up three of your very own Muscat trials and then once you have decided on which one you like the most, you will then make up a 200ml blend of this Muscat, to take home as your very own!
