"The 2012 The Bothie has pretty grape and ripe peach aromas with some floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom. Very sweet, forward and well balanced on the medium to full-bodied palate, it gives a long spicy / ginger laced finish. Drink it now."
–December 2012

2012 Torbreck 'The Bothie' Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains
Torbreck Wines

Muscat Blanc a petit grains from John Nietschke's Ebeneezer vineyard is harvested in several stages to achieve different levels of ripeness, creating a myriad of potential flavors. A small amount of spirit is added to the fermenting wine to arrest the yeasts against further activity 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.
