    You’re setting the scene for a great dinner party here Susan!
    Sounds rather delicious, and if it’s a good match for blue cheese – I think I’ll check it out. Nice to see it has a UK connection 🙂

    • Hi Jacs, It is really good with blue cheese. That makes it a winner in my mind for sure. 🙂

  • Hmmm, I’ve not dabbled much in dessert wines. Which of course means I will have to soon fix that…

    • Aw, you must, Jeri. They are just so interesting and can add so much to the end of a meal. 🙂

  • Julie

    This sound really good. I do like a good aperitif, especially with blue cheese after a meal and this may worth finding.

    • Then you will enjoy this one Julie, Cheers. 🙂

  • HB

    I’m not much for a sweet wine, but I do like what you said about it and where it comes from. The town sounds really neat.

    • Hi HB, Not everyone does and that’s OK. That’s why there is so much variety in the wine world. There is always something for everybody. 🙂

  • The description sounds akin to a barley wine. I wouldn’t mind doing a side by side comparison.

    • Hi Jon, That is a very good idea. We need to think about that in the future. 🙂

    I’d love to visit Australia and try it. What exactly is a dessert wine? Do they always have dessert flavor hints in them?

    • Me too, Krystle. It is on my bucket list for sure. A dessert wine is usually a sweeter wine that is treated more like a liqueur. Many times it’s been fortified with brandy or some sort of alcohol. 🙂

      • HomeJobsbyMOM

        Sounds like something I’d probably like 🙂

  • Candace M. Braddock

    Thank you so much for this post!
    I have not been to a wine tasting in awhile, so I am rather ignorant when it comes to dessert wines. This post puts me in the loop. i can’t wait to find this and present it during Date Night 🙂

    • Hi Candace, and welcome. It’s a fun wine for that. The best part is it will be something I believe you will enjoy as well. 🙂

  • I don’t think I have ever tasted Muscat, probably because I am not into dessert wines. Always enjoy the background you give about the regions.

    • Hi Susan, A good dessert wine my change your mind. :-). The info on this wine made me want to visit Australia even more… 🙂

  • A.K. Andrew

    I love Muscat & think of it as a rare treat, so glad to have the recommendation. Thanks Susan.

    • Hi AK, Then you will enjoy this one for sure. Enjoy my friend. 🙂

  • Adrienne

    I love wine Susan but I admit not being a connoisseur myself. I go more for Zinfandels and sweet and/or fruity wines. This one doesn’t sound like one that I would like with the flavors that you mentioned but I do enjoy learning the history. Pretty neat and glad you enjoyed it.


    • Hi Adrienne, Not all are fans of an aperitif or dessert type wine. I do love a good Zin and am always in search of one. To me, the beauty of wine is there is always something for every taste. 🙂

  • Merle Gibbins

    Great post Susan. My fathers side of the family were all from Rutherglen but I have learnt something new today about the wine. You always associate whiskey with Scotland !!

    • Hi Merle, Thanks, my friend. That is very cool. I agree, when I think of Scotland I always think of their amazing whiskey.

  • Love the bottle! 🙂

    • I do to Cheryl, It can be reused of other things too. 🙂

  • Jessica Fedorko

    I’ve never had Muscat, I will definitely have to try it… Personally I love learning the history of wines. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to reading more on wine so I can show off my knowledge at dinner parties 😉

    • Hi Jessica, It pleases me that I am able to help in that way :-), I think you’ll enjoy this wine when you try it. 🙂
