About The Wine

This 100+-year-old vineyard in the Moppa sub-region of the Barossa Valley has been managed now by Domenic Torzi for the last decade.

It makes the flagship wine in the Torzi Matthews range. Domenic treats this vineyard as his own, handling the vineyard traditionally with the use of natural sprays and encouraging native grass cover between rows.

This is an excellent Barossa Shiraz. Fermented as 40% whole bunches and basket pressed to top quality oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is a true and pure representation of this great old vineyard.

Gary Walsh awarded this 94 points and noted that, "Fanciers of more savoury expressions of Barossa Shiraz should take a look."

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"113yo dry grown vines at Moppa Hill yielding 1.2 tonnes per acre, hand-picked, open, wild fermentation, matured for 14 months in French oak 10% new. A wonderful wine from a very old vineyard made with sensitivity, keeping all the focus on the fruit, not the oak or the tannins. The decision to use 40% whole bunches was inspired, injecting a perfume to the bouquet and freshness to a palate that is no more than medium-bodied." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

94Points
The Wine Front

"Spicy and saucy, blackberries and salted beef, slight floral and mint perfume: oak is low, fruit intensity is high. Medium bodied, all blackberry and blackcurrant, crisp acidity, firm dense packed tannin, lashings of spice and saline mineral stuff, grip and juicy boysenberry on a long finish. It’s kind of bold and understated at once, if that makes any sense. Fanciers of more savoury expressions of Barossa Shiraz should take a look." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
