95 Points - Gary Walsh | RRP $48
Frost Dodger is the flagship Shiraz made by Torzi Matthews from their Mt McKenzie vineyard in the Eden Valley. After a few years hiatus, the Frost Dodger Shiraz returns with the ultra impressive 2018 vintage - the 12th release of this estate single vineyard wine.
All fruit for the 2018 Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Shiraz were hand harvest and gently destemmed including 20% whole bunch into open top milk vats and fermented naturally with soft pump overs and basket pressed to barrel to complete ferment. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, the result is a generous, complex shiraz bursting with lovely aromatics, deep, dark flavour and loads of enjoyment.
"95 Points. It’s back, last seen in the 2013 vintage. Rich and ripe, blackberry and blackcurrant of sweetness and intensity, mint chocolate, wheat, a little truffle and spice. Medium-bodied, dense and packed with thick ripe tannin, ripe raspberry and more savoury black olive and sundried tomato flavours. Finish is matted with ripe tannin and carries long. FD fans will be most pleased. Tasted: Jul19 Alcohol: 14.5% Price: $48 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2030+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
