Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2017 (Eden Valley)

"It’s a nice word ‘Schist’. This wine is Schist, but it’s not schist.

Spicy greenery of whole bunch, truffle, blackberry, dried herb and flowers, a wee bit of camphor. Medium to full-bodied, fine grainy tannin, a whole lot of spice, saline and savoury stuff in among fruit of almost Ribena-like intensity. Lovely grip and chalkiness through the finish, and more of that intense blackcurrant trailing along. It’s very Eden Valley, but with Torzi fingerprints all over it."

Son of Frost Dodger. Single vineyard estate grown wine in the chilly surrounds of Mount McKenzie in the Eden Valley, Barossa. This label represents our rendition of Eden Valley, Barossa Shiraz which is the non dried portion fruit that of Frost Dodger Shiraz and is aged in ex Frost Dodger barrels.

Family traditional responsible farming methods with a diet of composts, native grasses & flora as ground cover, low water input and natural sprays for diseases.

Altitude of 380 metres above sea level. Clay loam over a shaley schist rock bed. Vine age of 22 years with a yield of 2.5 ton per acre.

Aged for 17 months in ex Frost Dodger barrels with the addition of 10% new French oak along with seasoned French oak barrels.

Excellent winter rains and good fruit set was a good sign for a healthy vintage. Summer was mild to warm with a couple of rain events during January & February helped freshen things up leading into April harvest to produce a beautifully complex & flavoured shiraz.

In the garage the shiraz fruit was gently destemmed including 25% whole bunch into open top milk vats and fermented warm with natural yeasts, soft pump overs, hand plunging and basket pressed to barrel to complete ferment. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Expect all that this label represents; wine enjoyment! Winery Notes
