Description

The Barossa is far from a monolithic producer of Shiraz & Co; there are lots of alternative varietal plantings going back over 100 years, mostly for fortified wine production which used to be all the rage in the rotary phone days.

This lovely, nutty, almost resinous Trebbiano hails from plantings dating back to 1905 in part of the original Koonunga Hill vineyard.

It is crunchy, yet rich, refreshing but textured, and is a wonderful nod to winemaker Dominic Torzi's Italian heritage.

Hand picked, crushed into small 500kg fermenters for 14 days skin then basket pressed to seasoned French oak for for 16 months to build texture, weight and complexity. A lovely delicate and yet very complex dry styling with lifted stone fruits, citrus florals and grapefruit.


Flavours of zesty lemon, nuts, grapefruit and stone fruits that persists to a savoury delightful finish most suited to shellfish and white meats.

94 Points - From a single vineyard dating back to 1905. Spends 14 days on skins, which is how Trebbiano likes it, in my opinion.

Golden colour and texture like sun. I’m thinking mandarin and cumquats, honey, jasmine, maybe peach and cinnamon. It’s fleshy and powdery in texture, juicy and fruity, but nutty and saline too, the finish long and chalky with a subdued Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit gum aftertaste. Oh, and lemon. Magic.

Torzi Matthews

Some years back, noted Australian wine writer Philip White called Domenic Torzi 'Australia's Best Bargain Winemaker'. Today, that statement still could not be more accurate.

The wines from Dom Torzi and Tracy Matthews are some of the best buys in the Barossa Valley and the country. Alongside their excellent classic range of old vine Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling, they make a small amount of fascinating Italian variety wines, inspired by their Italian heritage.

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

"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)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
