Winery Notes:
"A sweet wine at Torbreck was always going to be something slightly different – equally enjoyable as an aperitif as it is with dessert, this fortified sweet Muscat à Petits Grains varietal exhibits lifted fruit aromatics, characteristic of its origin."

Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains is harvested in several stages to achieve different levels of ripeness, creating a myriad of potential flavours.

A small amount of spirit is then added to the fermenting wine to arrest the yeast activity and raise the alcohol level to around 14%.

Torbreck is the name of a forest near Inverness, Scotland. You’ll find more than a passing nod to the Celts in our wine naming conventions including this reference to the place to stop on a highland trail for a rest – a Bothie.

TASTING NOTE:
Equally as enjoyable as an aperitif as it is with dessert, 2014 The Bothie displays beautifully fragrant aromas of fresh pine-lime, melon and lychee accompanied by extraordinary floral notes. The subtle, clean flavours of lemon sorbet, lemon tart and orange rind balance perfectly with the residual sugar creating a full, lush, round palate.
