On a highland trail, the place to stop and rest is known as a bothie. This fortified old sweet white is the sort of wine one would hope to find while taking a break from inclement scottish weather.
The Bothie is a fortified old sweet white, a blend of traditional grape varieties which have been used to make this style of wine in the Barossa for generations. Including Madeira Semillon, Frontignac, Palomino, Doradillo, Grenache and Shiraz, these varieties have a rich, and sometimes forgotten history of fortified winemaking in the Barossa.
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.
