The just released 2020 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. I gather Dom Torzi thinks this 2020 is one of his best releases to date. I guess he’d know. Firstly, wonderful texture and feel in the mouth with plenty of chalk and stony stuff. Flavours are green apple, lime and lemon verbena, fennel and ginger. It’s intense and crunchy, but has weight and powdery grip to go with all the sizzling acidity. It’s very long, and firm, to close. Most definitely a bit of the old mouth-watering going on here. Tasted: Jun20 12.5% alc. $28 Screwcap Drink: 2021 - 2035" - 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.
