Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Shiraz
Eden Valley
Available in cartons of six
A partnership between Torzi and Matthews, they stumbled across a small, frost pocketed hollow on beautiful Mt McKenzie in Valley Eden. Torzi Matthews fell in love with the area for its remoteness and diverse thin soils. Attraction to the site was immediate, it was clear that this patch would produce low yields of Shiraz which could translate into the luscious style of dry racked Italian Appassimento wines. There were plenty of detractors and lots of unsolicited advice. The vines went in, frosts came and yields were low, Frost Dodger was born.

A single vineyard wine grown to the chilly surrounds of Mt McKenzie in the Eden Valley, crafted to the ancient Italian tradition of racking grapes to concentrate flavours. Frost Dodger are crafted via non intervention techniques. A diet of composts, native grasses and flora is used for ground cover, low water imput and natural sprays for diseases. Grapes are gently destemmed, a third is included as whole bunches into open fermenters for a warm vinification to indigenous yeasts. Pumped over, hand plunged and basket pressed to oak for completion of ferments. The final wine is matured in a selection of seasoned and new, French and Hungarian puncheons and barriques for twenty months.
 
Deep red purple colour. A big bouquet of concentrated fruit, berries, pepper and plum, remarkable intensity of natural fruit sugar characters from the appassimento technique. Licorice and pepper, an remarkable intensity within a singularity of power, elegance and finesse. Its solid palate, drenched in thick bramble flavours, rejuvenated by splendid, refined acidity, supported by gossamer velvet tannins.

Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz
Eden Valley
Available by the dozen
The Torzi Matthews team work to a formula that low yields translate into big, flavoursome wines. They selected a property in one of the most inhospitable parts of Eden Valley, where unending toil and frigid climes realize meagre amounts of parched berries each vintage. From grapes grown to the chilly surrounds of Mount McKenzie, incorporating the undried parcels of fruit earmarked for the estate flagship Frost Dodger, Mathews and Torzi craft an intense yet acessible construct of Eden Valley Shiraz to match bold Mediterrannean cuisine.

The Mt McKenzie site is subject to traditional biological farming, a diet of composts with native grasses and flora as ground cover, low water input and natural sprays to keep disease under control. Vines eighteen years of age are grown to clay loam over a shaley schist rock bed, trained to single wire trellis. A very minimalistic handling includes a component of whole bunch, open top vinification and wild yeast ferments, soft pumpovers, hand plunging and an old fashioned basket press. Components complete their ferments and eighteen months maturation in prior use Frost Dodger barrels and seasoned French Cadus et Radoux oak barriques, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
 
Bright scarlet colour. Bursting with deep aromatics, perfumed, floral notes, dark fruits and sweet spice. Vibrant palate of mulberry, rasberries and cherry, espresso and chocolate, festive spice and all things nice, finishing long and complete on a length of fine grained tannins. Expect all that the Torzi Mathews style represents, alongside braised goat or piquant buddhist casserole.

In 1996 Tracy and Domenic stumbled across a small, frost pocketed hollow on beautiful Mt McKenzie in the Eden Valley and fell in love with the area for its remoteness and diverse thin soils. The rationale was quite simple, this land would produce low yields of Shiraz fruit which would translate into full, flavoursome Italian styles of wine to match their beloved Mediterranean cooking. Torzi and Matthews had plenty of detractors and lots of unsolicited advice, some good, some … well some people don't have vision.

The vines went in, the frosts came, the yields were low and Frost Dodger was born. Frost Dodger wines are crafted to non intervention European techniques, the Italian appassimento method is used for Shiraz, a regimen which employs a careful hand harvest of whole bunches which are then put onto racks and laid out for drying in the open. The parched grapes are then fermented naturally by the indigenous yeasts of the vineyard.

Torzi Matthews white wines also employ European non-interventional methods, hand picking and whole bunch pressing, the free run juices are naturally fermented by indigenous yeasts from the vineyard.

Torzi Matthews make a range of Italian varietal wines under the Vigna Cantina label. These represent Mario & Francesca Torzi's native wine grape varietals. Torzi Matthews have taken great effort in sourcing the planting materials and determining a quality of vineyard sites which were not readily available a decade ago. These wines are truly wonderful, their aromatics and fresh lively fruit flavours represent a pinnacle in the pairing of wines with Italian food.

The story however doesn’t end there. While establishing their vineyards, Torzi & Matthews took over reigns of the family extra virgin olive oil business. Setting a new direction, they increased the sourcing of wild olives to groves scattered throughout the Barossa. These magnificent ancient wild olive trees date back to the 1880s, today they produce extra virgin olive oil of amazing quality and character. "Domenic Torzi is typical of the new generation of Australian wine artisans, hand-making wine from a small patch of vines, taking an extraordinary risk by planting vines in a frost pocket on the gentle slopes of Mt McKenzie. So much is made of the Barossa and to a lesser extent Clare Valleys that the beautiful Eden Valley, its unpaved roads lined with gums, is often overlooked. Yalumba and Henschke are the king and queen. Torzi Matthews is definitely an upstart serf!" -Jancis Robinson
