Sexy scenes of wild abandon used to emblazon the labels of our Muse Wine Series—a Dionysian romp for the twenty-first century, acted out by the wonderful dancers at BalletLab. Export regulators threw a tantrum (Bums! Tits! Sins of the flesh!) meaning there were problems stocking our wines across the country and internationally. The nude labels are long gone, but you can still see them if you stay in Mona’s penthouse pavilion, Roy.

Muse is wine of the old world made in the new—a Tasmanian expression of classic European winemaking. These wines exude texture, integration and complexity. Savour their fine balance and finesse with delicate food. They’re great in their youth, and excellent with bottle maturity.
