Riversands Vineyards Golden Liqueur Muscat Blanc NV

Member Review by roseanne74:

Love, love, LOVE this!! An absolute taste sensation out on its own!! VERY sweet, but exceptionally smooth on the palate ... very rich (after all, it IS a liqueur) ... a bit expensive, but VERY well worth it in the long run.

Current owners David & Alison Blacket purchased the vineyard in 1996. Grapes were first planted at Riversands in 1986. Table grape varieties are Menindee, Flame Seedless and Midnight Beauty. Wine grape varieties range from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, White and Black Muscat, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Ruby Cabernet and Merlot. A total of aprox 50 acres (20ha), comprising 38 acres of table grapes and 12 acres of wine grapes. The vines at Riversands range between 2 and 21 years of age. We also plant new varieties and replace vines as needed. on average, do we produce from our grapes? About 4000 dozen per year. We crush about 50-55 tonnes of wine grapes per year, depending on the season. 2002 - 70 tonnes. 2003 - 40 tonnes. 2004 - 60 tonnes. The date palms actually came from Eulo, near Cunnamulla. There used to be 181 date palms in the front block. The female palms produce the fruit, whereas the males don't play a major part of production, they're more for looks and pollination! Original ratio of males : females = 1-2 : 15. Now, most of the date palms have been replaced with Menindee Seedless table grapes. Ballandean Estate, near Stanthorpe Qld, contract processes our wine grapes. During vintage the freshly picked grapes are transported by refrigerated trucks to Ballandean. They are crushed, processed then placed into our vats or barrels. Ballandean Estate is owned by Angelo and Mary Puglissi and their families. A free wine tasting session in our cosy wine cellar will take you through the flavours of the most Western vineyard in Queensland. Soak up the luxury of our breathtaking sunsets and the inviting atmosphere of our outdoor garden on your visit, or attend one of our great events! Read less
