On a highland trail, the place to stop and rest when weary is known as a Bothie. Torbreck have been tinkering away at a sweet wine since 2001, the idea was always to construct something that's just a little bit different. This sweeter style of Frontignac exhibits lifted fruit aromatics, lifted perfumes of rosewater and honeydew melon, geraniums and lime, very characteristic of it's Barossa provenance. Bothie is a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed either at the start of a meal or nicely chilled at the end, alongside fresh fruits and cheese, ice creams or sorbet.
Torbreck's owner operator David Powell has always been a huge fan of France's Muscat Beaumes de Venise. Muscat à Petits Grains (Brown Frontignac) grapes are harvested from Helbig Vineyard at Marananga in several stages to acheive different levels of ripeness, creating a myriad of potential flavours. Grapes are gently crushed and pressed with as little skin contact as possible to minimize phenolics. Fruit is treated to a slow vinification in fermenters, halted mid way by the addition of a neutral spirit to arrest yeasts against further acivity and raise alcohol level to around fourteen percent, retaining Brown Frontignac's natural sweetness.
TASTING NOTES
A vibrant, straw/ peach yellow colour. Beautifully fragrant aromas of fresh pine/ lime, melon and lychees are accompanied by extraordinary floral notes. The subtle, clean flavours of lemon sorbet, lemon tart and orange rind balance perfectly with the residual sugar to achieve a full, lush, round palate. A sweet but substantial wine, equally enjoyable as aperitif or dessert.

About Torbreck Winery
Low yielding, old and dry grown Barossa Valley vineyards are the cornerstone of Torbreck Vintners
Torbreck founder David Powell was immersed in the study of Economics at Adelaide University, when an uncle introduced him to wine. Young Dave realized that grapes could be more intriguing than numbers. He began spending more and more of his spare time in the Barossa Valley and during the winters, he availed himself of the opportunity to venture overseas to work harvests in California and Italy. He travelled throughout the famous wine regions of Europe and even spent time in Scotland as a lumberjack. This experience was instrumental in illuminating the unique attributes of the Barossa, at a time when others felt its heritage was past the sell by date. Torbreck»
