Last Stocks | 96 Points, "Outstanding" - Gary Walsh
Torzi Matthews is a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews. While Torzi Matthews are well-known for their high quality Shiraz, they've shown themselves equally capable of producing some high quality Eden Valley Riesling.
The 2021 Torzi Matthew Frost Dodger Riesling offers loads of zesty, citrus and white stone fruits aromatic, while the palate sears with vibrancy, texture and weight, finishing crisp, dry and long. A top flight example of Eden Valley Riesling with a long future ahead of it - although it's pretty irresistible now.
"96 Points. The 2020 was outstanding, and this may even be better again. 50-90 year old vines. Wooh-ah! White nectarine, flint, radish and spice, floral top notes. Pure acidity, layers of chalk dust texture, mealy, saline and juicy with pink grapefruit, lime and a super long spicy finish offering grip, kohlrabi and subtle quinine bite. Outstanding. Tasted: Jun21 12.5% alc. $28 Screwcap. Drink: 2021 - 2034." - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
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.
