- Torbreck The Bothie
A sweet wine at Torbreck was always going to be something slightly different and we've been tinkering away at it since 2001. Muscat Blanc a petit grains from John Nietschke's Ebeneezer vineyard is harvested in several stages to acheive different levels of ripeness, creating a myriad of potential flavours. A small ammount of spirit is added to the fermenting wine to arrest the yeasts against further acivity and raise the alcohol level to around 14 percent. The Bothie typically displays lifted aromas of rose water, honeydew melon,lime and geranium. It's a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed either at the start of a meal or nicely chilled at the end with fresh fruit, ice creams or sorbets.'On a highland trail the place to stop and rest when weary is known as a Bothie. This sweeter styled wine exhibits lifted fruit aromatics characteristic of its origin'. David Powell

"Exceptional" (RunRig Shiraz); "Excellent" (Descendant Shiraz Viognier) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV
"Since 1994 Torbreck has been committed to creating exceptional Rhone style red and white wines reflecting the very best vineyards in Australia’s famous Barossa." - Torbreck
"one of Australia's best-known high quality red wine makers" - James Halliday
"...home to some of the oldest vines on the planet... The Torbreck endeavour is based around the classic Rhone varietals of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, from mostly old vines scattered throughout the microclimates of the Barossa. Whilst Torbreck specialises in making red wines, there is Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne planted on our Descendant vineyard which we blend into white wine. The first wine was the 1995 Runrig crushed from just three tonnes of Shiraz and Viognier grapes.
Torbreck’s long term vision of 100% estate produced and bottled wine reached completion in 2008 when a new winery and administration facility was opened on land acquired from a next door neighbour. This facility enables our grapes to be handpicked, vinified into wine using the best available equipment, matured in temperature controlled cellars and then bottled ‘on the estate’ using a state of the art bottling line, before being shipped to many of the world’s best restaurants and fine wine retailers." - Tourism Barossa
