Torbreck The Bothie Frontignac 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Muscat Frontignac Barossa South Australia
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.
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.
