Australian Wagyu Marble Scores
Australia is one of the biggest producers of Wagyu Beef in the world, and uses its own grading scale, the AUS-MEAT marbling system. This scale goes from 0 (no marbling) to 9+ (extraordinary amounts of marbling), the latter one being the highest grade. .
Blue Label Marble Score 4-5
Riddled with a good amount of creamy white fat marbling, MS 4 and MS 5 Wagyu beef delivers mouthwatering flavor, and a softer texture than you’ll ever experience from supermarket 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!
White Label 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.
Black Label Marble Score 8-9
With Wagyu Marbling Scores of 8 and 9 you’re entering 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 melt-in-your-mouth texture that you’ll never forget.
