Bethany Old Quarry Fronti

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Here is a fortified wine that is made from Muscadelle, Muscat a Petit Grains and Pedro Ximenez (or PX for short). It comes from some of the oldest vines on the estate and displays a deepish golden colour, along with some appealing orange marmalade aromas. This caramelised, preserved fruit charcater comes through on the palate with 18.6% alcohol to keep things kicking along. Would go quite nicely with light chocolate desserts, or some aged cheddar.

Winemaker's Notes

Our unique Old Quarry Fronti is made from Muscadelle; Muscat a Petit Grains and Pedro Ximenez grapes grown on some of the oldest vines at our Homestead vineyard, harvested late in the season to achieve maximum flavour and intensity, then fortified with premium quality brandy spirit and aged for an average of eight years in an old oak cask solera. The finished wine displays a beautiful golden, amber colour and a bouquet and palate of caramelised fruit with nuances of orange marmalade.

The grapes are harvested late in the season to achieve maximum flavour and intensity, then fortified with premium quality brandy spirit and aged for an average of eight years in an old oak cask solera. The mature barrels are topped with the younger and more sprightly vintages which add a touch of freshness and balance. The average age is 8 years.
