There are few better ways to wind up an evening than with a delicious Australian Fortified, and these are just the wines for a fantastic digestif or nightcap.
The Morris Classic Tawny 500ml NV is a classic drop from the home of Australian Fortified and David Morris, one of the country’s most awarded winemakers. Medium tawny red in appearance with lifted prune, spice and rancio aromas, it’s medium-bodied yet generous with delicious layers of classic Rutherglen richness and almost savoury length. One to enjoy with blue cheese, dates, grilled nuts and lavoche.
From the iconic Hunter Valley comes the Three Ponds Homan Tawny 375ml 2015, a deliciously rich, vintage tawny from the skilled hands of Michael McManus. Drinking well now and over the next few years, it is sweet and unctuous with dark berry fruit, dark chocolate, cinnamon and burnt caramel, Christmas cake richness and a long, rich finish - a classic match with desserts like bread and butter pudding.
The Tulloch family are pioneers of Hunter Valley winemaking and, if the Tulloch Limited Release Muscat 375ml NV is anything to go by, equally at home in Rutherglen. Seamless and velvety on the palate with a core of toffee and caramel, spirit freshness and lift, a soft and smooth mouthfeel and a long, sweet finish, this is a simply fabulous Fortified to pair with chocolate-based desserts like fondant, or salted caramel tarts.
