Torzi Matthews is a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews. Both share a passion and firm conviction of appreciating the value of heritage 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.
Old Vine Eden Valley Riesling sourced from two frost pocketed vineyards dating back to 1930.
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: June 2020; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $28; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2021-2035; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
