Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2018

Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2018 South Australia Barossa Valley

$21.55

Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2018. Incredible value. Dom Torzi sets a modest price, but is invariably confident about the quality of his wines.

Bright blueberry and blackberry, plenty of pepper and spice, potpourri perfume. It’s medium bodied, sleek and dark cherry juicy, super fine tannin, some meaty and nutty flavours, gentle stony tannin pulling along the finish.

Our Story

Torzi Matthews, a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews have passion and the firm conviction of appreciating the value of heritage tradition in the crafting of their wines and olive produce.

Domenic is fifth generation Calabrian – Abruzzese stock and grew up on the Adelaide Plains working for the family’s market gardens, Tracy was born and raised in Newcastle, NSW with a long career in hospitality.

In 1996 we 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 our Mediterranean food. We had plenty of detractors and lots of unsolicited advice, some good, some …well some people don’t have vision.

OZWINE REVIEW ANDREW GRAHAM MW OCT 2019

The second label to the glorious ’18 Frost Dodger and is basically the non dried fruit portion and aged in ex-Frost Dodger barrels.

What a $25 wine it is too. Fennel, dark chocolate and dark berries with a little mint. Maybe a bit more diffuse than the top dog (which has the added complexity of air-dried fruit), but this is plush fruited and generous with a liberal dose of spice and light tannins. Modern Barossa in a good way.

You could pay $40 a bottle and get less wine.

Would I buy it? Absolutely.
