Torzi Matthews: Best Buys in the Barossa

Some years back, noted Australian wine writer Philip White called Domenic Torzi 'Australia's Best Bargain Winemaker'. That statement remains true to this day.

The wines from Dom Torzi and Tracy Matthews are some of the best buys in the Barossa Valley and the country.

At every turn in their range, the quality for the dollars asked beggars belief. As you might expect, Shiraz is one of their fortés. The Francesca Grillo Syrah, named for Dom's mum, is a beautiful unforced expression of the Barossa. Consistently one of our most popular sub-$40 Shiraz from this famous region. Or, the Mystic Park Shiraz at $25 offers a bright, bouncy but luscious drink. Superb buying for Barossa fans here, either way you go.

"You’d have to put Dom Torzi’s Torzi Matthews wines into the ‘some of best value/most consistent wines in the country’ list, right near the shiny top. A touch of magic. An eye on drinkability. Considered vineyard sources. Gentle overlay of winemaking. He gets it. Really gets it."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

The Frost Dodger Riesling is considered something of a benchmark for Eden Valley Riesling after huge reviews consecutively for the last 4 or 5 years. At $23 it screams value.

And if you're looking for something a little different, you must check out the Vigna Cantina range which is a suite of excellent, classically styled wines that honour Dom's Italian heritage. The Prosecco in this range may well be the classiest and most complex wine in this style in the whole country.

At every price point, in every style, these wines hugely and consistently overdeliver and are simply a must-buy for any lover of honest, delicious Barossan wines.
