Another crowd-pleasing Schist Rock Shiraz that offers super value Barossa Shiraz drinking at this price.
"A generous and highly flavoursome shiraz from the Mt McKenzie area of Eden Valley. It’s a smooth and textured lively shiraz, reflecting the cooler influences of this part of the Eden Valley high above the Barossa. Dark chocolate and blackberry with luscious liqueur cherry and plum flavours. Love the grainy mouthfeel. 92/100"- Ray Jordan, The West Australian, January 2021.
"Intense and packed with flavour. Ripe dark cherry, dark fruit cake and spice, a little violet and dried mint. It’s full-bodied, beefy and spicy, fine chalky tannin, dark chocolate and cherry, with a pretty long ripe finish. Very elemental as at now, with heaps of stuffing, and good potential. 92 Points Tasted: Dec20. 14.5% alc. $25 Screwcap Drink: 2022 - 2028+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
"Mark this new Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2020 as another absolute winner from Dom Torzi. Chocolate and coffee bean oak, but not oaky, the palate taut, mid-weight, surprisingly tannic, and even introduces some truffley complexity in there too. Not profound in its fruit weight or intensity, but choc-full of dark-fruited Eden Valley Shiraz charisma for very few dollars. Yes yes! Best drinking: good to go, and for plenty of years yet. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14.5%, $25.. Would I buy it? Well worth a bottle." - Andrew Graham, www.ozwinereview.com.
Torzi Matthews is a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews. Both share a passion and the firm conviction of appreciating the value of heritage tradition in the crafting of their wines and olive produce. In 1996 they stumbled across a small, frost-pocketed hollow in the beautiful Mt McKenzie, Eden Valley and fell in love with the area for its remoteness and its diverse thin soils.
The rationale was quite simple: this land would produce low yields of fruit which in turn would translate into flavoursome European style wines - the style of wines needed to match their Mediterranean food. Torzi Matthews also produces wines under the Vigna Cantina label that introduces their Italian family native varietals and those outside the Italian wares that they seek interest to explore.
The wines of Torzi Matthews are truly wonderful in their aromatics and fresh lively fruit flavours, with their Schist Rock Shiraz and Frost Dodger Shiraz becoming perennial favourites of ours, while their Frost Dodger Riesling is always a stunning example of Eden Valley Shiraz.
