Since the 1960’s, plantings have declined in France. Slowly falling out of favor, the variety ripens too early in the season, often producing sporadic yields, and infamously non-resistant to rot. However, Muscadelle has found a new lease on life in the vineyards of Victoria Australia, going by the name: Topaque.
Both of the Australian wines Glenrowan and Rutherglen, (two historically fortified wines) us Muscadelle in their blend to create wines of a vibrant, luscious golden color. The process of these wines begins with the grapes being left to semi-dry on the vine. Then they are partly fermented and fortified (usually with a neutral grape spirit) and barrel aged. The wine remains in the barrel until it develops rich butterscotch and caramel flavors. Wonderfully sweet, these silky wines age well for several years. Order now!

For most of its history in Victoria Australia, Muscadelle was mistakenly called “Tokay.” It was misidentified as a variety blended in the Hungarian production of Tokaji. It wasn’t until the mid-1970’s that the truth came out, and its true origins and name were revealed. However the “Tokay” name stuck until 2007, when it was officially changed to Topaque (as the Australian producers didn’t want the variety confused with the sweet Hungarian wine: Tokaji).
