94 Points - Gary Walsh
Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling is crafted from two old vine Eden Valley vineyards dating back to 1930. A Riesling that has gained a huge following, the 2023 release is a product of ideal growing conditions, which delivered grapes of wonderful flavour intensity and high natural acidity.
The 2023 Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling offers loads of zesty, citrus and white stone fruits aromatic, while the palate sears with vibrancy, texture and complexity, finishing crisp, dry and long. Another top-flight Eden Valley Riesling, this offers loads of appeal now however will reward cellaring for the more patient.
"94 Points. Preserved lemon, white pepper and spice, white flowers, fennel, and fresh apricot. It’s juicy, quite yellow in flavour, with a fine dusty/chalky texture, bright acidity, pink grapefruit with some pith, almond, and a firm chalky finish of excellent length, with a cinch of citrus peel bitterness. Texture is lovely, and indeed, this Riesling continues to be one of the most distinctive offerings available from this country. As an aside, it’s quite Italianate in its delivery, which of course I really like. Tasted: June23. 12.5% alc. $28 Screwcap Drink: 2023 - 2030"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
"It’s wild that this Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling 2023 is one of the foremost Riesling in the country, and it is just $28 a bottle. What a blessed Riesling world we live in, hey? Another sterling release in 2023, as well. As ever, the mark of Dom Torzi’s Riesling is the intensity – with this thump of green, crunchy fruit, celery, grapefruit and something chalky. Line up all the Eden Valley descriptors, and you’ve got them. A taut and linear release, though. For all that green fruit, the acidity isn’t harsh. It’s a firm, citrussy acidity, but so natural and right - you want to drink this, not hose the driveway. What an archetypal dry Australian Riesling (and a bloody bargain)."- Andrew Graham, ozwinereview.com.
