MARBLE SCORE GUIDE
WAGYU MARBLE SCORE 9+
With our Super Wagyu MB9+ you’re entering the rarefied realm of the billionaires of beef. There’s a whole new level of richness to these steaks, with softness approaching stick-of-butter levels. Succulent and juicy, that gorgeous web of creamy intramuscular fat – the marbling – which characterizes wagyu beef spreads more and more throughout the meat, giving it a melt-in-your-mouth texture that you’ll never forget.
WAGYU MARBLE SCORE 8-9
With our Wagyu Marbling Scores of 8 and 9 beef steaks you’re in for a very special treat. Less than 10% of the beef in the world is graded with a score of 8/9. You can only get it from a small number of farms.
This is the go-to steak for any celebration or family occasion worth remembering.
WAGYU MARBLE SCORE 6-7
Richer and denser premium steak cuts, with Marble Scores of 6 and 7 you’ll see significantly more of that gorgeous webbing of fat, and you’ll notice a creamier mouth-feel in each bite. Buttery without being overwhelmingly opulent, you still indulge in big portions without risking a richness overload.
WAGYU MARBLE SCORE 4-5
Riddled with a good amount of creamy white fat marbling, MB4/5 Wagyu beef delivers mouthwatering flavor and a softer texture than you’ll ever experience from regular steaks, all thanks to the privileged flavor profile of Wagyu cattle genetics. At a reasonable price, this is the perfect starter Wagyu…or for those who like to indulge often!
GRAIN-FED BLACK ANGUS MB 2/3+
Angus has always been bred purely for the production of highest quality beef indicated by the smooth, close-grained texture, carnation red colour and finely marbled fat within the lean muscle. Our Black Angus beef is perfect for your everyday meal. Full of flavour yet low in fat content.
GRASS-FED BLACK ANGUS MB 4+
Our grass-fed Black Angus promise is to deliver an all-natural grass-fed beef product that offers a minimum MB4+. A feat near impossible to replicate.
Naturally raised by our accredited farmers in southern Australia, ensuring the livestock meet our stringent “never ever” claims.
A DEEPER APPRECIATION OF NATURE
The first thing you notice about Australia Wagyu Beef is the abundance of intricate marbling throughout the meat. But that’s just one visible characteristic and source of flavor. Equally important are the texture, tenderness, and density of the beef, all of which are inherently superior qualities of our Australia Wagyu Beef
THE AUSTRALIAN SYSTEM
The MSA is a relatively new grading system and it is not very popular (yet). When calculating the MSA grade for beef, a number of attributes are measured such as meat color, marbling, fat depth, carcass weight, maturity and pH… it is very comprehensive.
The MSA marbling system is graded on a scale of 100 (no intramuscular fat) to 1190 (extreme amounts of intramuscular fat) in increments of 10.
