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."

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

97Points
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)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
