With an average age of around 8-10 years, the Classic range is all about freshness and varietal character balanced by subtle age complexity from time in barrel. The palate is fresh and stylish, with a great depth of flavour. Tawny is Australia’s most popular fortified wine style, and this is a very attractive Tawny with plenty of wood and fruit characters. WINE MAKERS NOTES Medium depth tawny brown with red hues, the aroma has ripe fruit characters complemented by complex nutty oak characters. A full flavoured palate with a dryness on the finish from the oak and spirit.
On the palate: Get lost in the concentrated flavours of caramel, vanilla bean and nuts. There are dried fruit characters and a marzipan edge, like a liquid Christmas cake. Try this one chilled during summer for a refreshing end to dinner party.
Over 155 years, the Morris family have earned their esteemed position as one of the most prominent wine-making families in Australia. Today, David Morris continues their wine making history combining tradition with contemporary techniques, ensuring that the Morris name remains one of the Australia’s most iconic and respected wine family dynasties. The original vineyards were planted in 1859, in Rutherglen, Victoria, by George Morris. Sadly these vineyards were destroyed by Phyloxera in the late 1890s. However, Charles Morris (George's son) planted a new vineyard in 1897, just a few kilometres away from the original site. This vineyard, named Mia Mia, is still in use today. Fifth generation winemaker, David Morris, is currently the Chief Winemaker for Morris Wines, although the company was aquired by Casella brands in 2016. The Morris range focuses on fortified wines, for which they have won numerous awards over the years. But they also produce a range of table wines.
