    Burge Family Winemakers’ old vine estate-bottled offerings, made by the modest, but enormously talented Rick Burge, are classic Barossa wines with extraordinary elegance as well as complex aromatics that combine European subtlety with Australian power.

    Sourced from material aged between six and ten years old, this wine is the foundation of the style; displaying the fresh raisin aromas, rich fruit, clean spirit and great length of flavor on the palate which are the mark of all the Muscats of Rutherglen. Drink now or cellar.

    The Muscat is a blend of North East Victorian Muscat which has "trickled" into Barossa Muscat and now some of the neighboring, Wally Krieg's red Muscat into over the recent years. This Muscat shows richness and a complexity of flavours. Fruitcake, toffee, raisins, coffee, combining with the natural grape sweetness, oak and alcohol produce a wine style uniquely Australian. Drink now or cellar.

    This blend represents the newest bottled offerings from this Rutherglen producer, an area that produces spectacular fortifieds, especially the Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle). Its freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed. Drink now or cellar.

    Until 3-4 decades ago, many Australian wineries were better known for their fortified than dry table wines. For whatever reason, many of these fortifieds fell out of favor in Australia, and have never received the respect they deserve given how spectacular many can be. Rick Burge's ancestors always made fortified wines, and kept the soleras active during their lifetimes. No one will be disappointed in this spectacular non-vintage fortified. Drink now or cellar.

    Semi-dried fruit, very much in the Amarone style. Sweet ripe berry fruit nose, with some raspberry and blackcurrant character. The palate shows lovely vivid, pure fruit with some sweetness. Really interesting stuff with lovely fruit quality. Fantastic with chocolate based desserts.

    This Vintage continues Niepoort's tradition to create balanced Ports with great concentration but simultaneously fine and delicate. At Niepoort we predict that this vintage will be one of the finest in decades...

    Vinification: In 2003, the harvest had very hot days and also very humid days. The production was high but with small grapes that produced concentrated tannins and colour. Overriped and dry grapes were taken out to reassure the finesse of the wine.

    Vinha da Pisca, (very old vineyard), with notes of coffee and black berries gave the final blend the desired finesse. In September 2005, the cycle for Niepoort Vintage 2003 was completed and now the wine ages in the final bottle, (32.000 bottles of 750ml).

    Tasting Notes: Fine, elegant, mineral but not balsamic. The taste continues fine, aggressive and with tannins, rich but not excessive and with a long final. Impressive finesse even though robust.

     

    Soil Type: Schist

    Vineyards: Vinha da Pisca, Vale do Pinhão and Ferrão

    Equally as enjoyable as an aperitif as it is with dessert, the 2013 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.

    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.

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