Morris of Rutherglen Cellar Reserve GRAND LIQUEUR TAWNY
Using classic Australian tawny varieties (Shiraz and Grenache), the grapes are allowed to fully ripen before harvesting. Blending different vintages to add layers of flavour and deep complexity is the secret to making this sophisticated wine which displays complex rancio characters from many years of ageing in old casks.
After partial fermentation and pressing, a specially selected low strength spirit is then added to stop the process. The young tawny is then placed into mature barrels for several years to develop the desired aged rancio characters. Only the best of these (and some as old as 40 to 50 years of age) will find their way into the Cellar Reserve Grand blend prior to bottling.
Will match perfectly with a room temperature brie and biscotti or nutty Manchego cheese
