About

Torzi Matthews have Trebbiano (Ugni Blanc) vines planted 113 years ago. A remarkable thing, these old vine are something the Barossa wears as a badge of honour. Here, winemaker Dominic Torzi gives this old vine fruit the full works in the winery. The fruit is left for 12 hours on its skins, fermented wild in barrel and matured in oak for 11 months prior to bottling looking to "build texture, weight and complexity." It's a wild wine full of layers and nuance. If you are hunting for something a little bit different, this is it.

What it Tastes Like

"Sandalwood, nougat, touch of sweet scented varnish, rose petal, lolly bag scents. Madness, but kind of like it. Toastiness in the palate, nougat-marzipan, lick of sweet fruit, soft, lemony finish. It’s got plenty of character, feels a touch overworked in its multiple personalities, not quite coherent in that way. Still, a very good glass of wine and it really grew on me." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
