The fifth generation of Morris endure as one of the world’s great winemaking estates, releasing an unbroken lineage of internationally renowned fortifieds year after year. Morris Liqueur Muscats are vinified from precious harvests of Brown Muscat grapes, a clone of the Muscat aux Petit Grains Rouge, which grows in bunches of small red berries. A rich bouquet of the most intense varietal Muscat characters, driven by a palate of wanton, indulgent complexity and beautified by the most beguiling rancio richness.
One of the finest and most interesting wines in Australia are the Morris Muscats. The unirrigated vines rely on natural rainfall. When very ripe at 16–18 baume, the grapes are hand picked, crushed and fermented on skins for 24 hours before draining and pressing the juice. The wine is topped up with spirit, and the fortified Muscat is matured in large oak casks ranging in size from 1,500 to 4,500 litres until blending. When blending occurs many different vintages are used in order to give lusciousness, richness, age and freshness.

About Morris Winery
After five generations of Rutherglen viticulture and unprecedented success at international competitions, David Morris has emerged as one of Australia's most outstanding winemakers
Morris Wines, established in 1859, is the continuing story of five generations of family winemakers. George Francis Morris established his vineyard and winery near Rutherglen in North Eastern Victoria. He planted a trial vineyard plot of ten acres at Fairfield two miles east of the current Morris Mia Mia winery location. By 1885 Morris planting's had grown to over 200 acres making them the largest wine producer in the Southern Hemisphere. By the late 1890s the devastating spread of Phyloxera, an aphidlike insect that attacks and kills vines, crippled the Rutherglen district. Morris»
