Borachio Vino Fantastico
Mark & Alicia traded in the big city life in Sydney to move down to the Adelaide Hills where they worked under natural wine icon, James Erskine of Jauma. It wasn't long before they started producing their own stuff and every year we are astounded at how much they progress. Some notes on this little beauty from the winemakers themself below:
Campania-esque grapefruit and herby bitterness floating in the ether. Something
fun we’d kinda forgotten about. A snapshot of our garden, we loaded a muslin bag with cola, wormwood, orange peel, bergamot, chocolate mint, coriander seed and lemon verbena.
Submerged in a tank of pinot gris, chardonnay and savagnin, we let steep for months. Orange orchard, quenching acidity, bitter grapefruit pith on the finish. Tasting blind you might say it’s an orange wine from Campania, that some mad
dog is pouring from a magnum. But the signature kick on the finish transports you somewhere else. JUST YUM. - Mark and Alicia, Borachio.
